How megacities are changing the map of the world

What about the new megacities of the world? How will these megacities change our thinking about nation states and democracy? Is it possible to create a sustainable urbanisation process? Watch this interesting TEDtalk of Parag Khanna!

“I want you to reimagine how life is organized on earth,” says global strategist Parag Khanna. As our expanding cities grow ever more connected through transportation, energy and communications networks, we evolve from geography to what he calls “connectography.” This emerging global network civilization holds the promise of reducing pollution and inequality — and even overcoming geopolitical rivalries. In this talk, Khanna asks us to embrace a new maxim for the future: “Connectivity is destiny.” (TED talk, 2016)
