Table stakes for urban structures in the near future: 🌇Every building generates more energy than it consumes 🌊Water is captured/filtered/reused like never before ⚡️Rooftops/curbsides are built for electric transport of all kinds https://worldpositive.com/a-tale-of-two-cities-2030-edition-c9bceb8ea1e3 @andrewbeebe @DiAnnEisnor
Every industry is now becoming a tech industry. Companies that follow an empathy-driven playbook vs. a "move fast and break things" approach will define the next chapter of Silicon Valley - and the global economy. https://worldpositive.com/industrial-iq-where-high-tech-meets-low-tech-27e2d920e2e @nanli (cc @karaswisher)

Tech has broken out of the Silicon Valley sandbox, and is now transforming industry. [Startups beware: "disruption" can carry with it a hubris that doesn’t play well within these trillion-dollar sectors.] A brilliant take by @nanli https://worldpositive.com/industrial-iq-where-high-tech-meets-low-tech-27e2d920e2e
Nothing speaks to the need for "local everything" economies, powered by electric transport, quite like high oil prices! @andrewbeebe @DiAnnEisnor https://worldpositive.com/a-tale-of-two-cities-2030-edition-c9bceb8ea1e3#---0-341

A preview of cities in 2030: "The air is cleaner. Creative classes are thriving. More production of food, goods, + services is local. We are increasingly fulfilled, living with less friction in all that we do, than ever before." @andrewbeebe @DiAnnEisnor https://worldpositive.com/a-tale-of-two-cities-2030-edition-c9bceb8ea1e3
Electrification is a necessary precondition for the positive transformation of cities - especially autonomous [cars/buses/trucks/air taxis]. @andrewbeebe @dianneisnor https://worldpositive.com/a-tale-of-two-cities-2030-edition-c9bceb8ea1e3#---68-327
Electrification is a necessary precondition for the positive transformation of cities - especially autonomous [cars/buses/trucks/air taxis].
By 2030, will our cities be (a) stuck in time, or (b) undergoing an urban renaissance? We choose (b). @andrewbeebe and @DiAnnEisnor explain how it happens. https://worldpositive.com/a-tale-of-two-cities-2030-edition-c9bceb8ea1e3 @GoodEggs @Lilium @Proterra_Inc @Joinmosaic @sighten_io @HelloInspire @plantprefab @lyric
