Top 20 Leaders in Urbanization

Tuesday, October 23, 2012 01:00 EDT
Urban migration is the drumbeat behind the global cities movement. And urbanization leaders are rising to prominence across the spheres of real estate, technology, and sustainability. 

By the year 2050, it is projected that 70 percent of the global population will live in cities, consuming the lion's share of the world’s natural resources. As populations rise and the pressure for limited resources increases, smart thinking is needed - in the form of smart cities, which harness technology to fight the challenges of urbanism, whilst maximising its creative and economic potential. 

In the following links, you'll find the Top 20 individuals around the globe who are at the forefront of this movement. (Feel we've missed the mark or left anyone off of our list? Be sure to tell us on the message boards.)
