The Next Slum?

The Next Slum?

Very interesting article. If you're at all interested in this topic, I'd also recommend the documentary "The End of Suburbia". While it's about peak oil and what could possibly happen to society when oil becomes more expensive and less available, there are also some fascinating ideas about the future of suburbia, and new things that are happening in urban planning.

thanks for watching our doc folks! when we released the doc in early 2004 nobody paid any attention to what we were saying. 'seems we are awefully close to our predictions from back then...

we just released our second doc in the trilogy and would sure appreciate your support. check it our on our site there are solutions, and increasing numbers of people dedicating their lives, or at least a growing part of their lives, to constructive solutions. this is being led by the climate change movement, and our new doc tries to address this.
