Recordings & Materials

For the first time in human history, more people live in cities and urban areas than in other environments. Some would say this is a natural course for humanity. Since our first beginnings we have gathered in tribes and groups, built dwellings in proximity to one another, and developed cooperative organizations to achieve safety, stability and growth. Others would point out that whenever possible individuals have migrated away from tribal clusters to establish places of their own, such as farms, towns and, ultimately urban centers. However we got here, the more than 9 billion people who inhabit the rapidly urbanizing earth face complex and challenging questions. Issues range from sanitation to allocation of resources, personal responsibility to one another and society and the customs and laws that govern our behavior and may impact our very existence.
