The Shareable Future of Cities

As part of our efforts to promote professional development among city leaders, each week we'll be featuring a new TED Talk focused on cities, community issues or local government. Because June is Small Cities Month, this week's talk focuses on inspiring community projects.

How can cities help save the future? Alex Steffen shows some cool neighborhood-based green projects that expand our access to things we want and need — while reducing the time we spend in cars.
