What will the next phase of globalization look like and how will it affect the way we live? Greg Lindsay, contributing writer for Fast Company and the author of the soon-to-be-published Aerotropolis: The Way We?ll Live Next, will present a vivid and at times disquieting look at how urban living will be shaped by new frontiers of globalization. Lindsay will explore the advance of the aerotropolis ? a combination of giant airport, planned city, shipping facility, and business hub. Learn how these evolving global developments will challenge our approach to the environment and our current way of life, and the opportunities they offer to those who can adapt to them creatively. Discover how the aerotropolis approach to urban living is reshaping life in Beijing and Amsterdam, in China and Rwanda, in Dallas and the Washington, D.C., suburbs and why many believe the aerotropolis is the frontier of the next phase of globalization, whether we like it or not.
