The future is rural

There is a lot of media attention given to cities today, around the benefits and challenges of city life – and of city planning. However, with the cost of living and level of stress associated with city living constantly increasing, people of all ages are realizing that there is a better way. Futurist Jesse Hirsh chats with Municipal World CEO Susan Gardner about Canada’s future, explaining how rural communities are the economic engines of tomorrow, and why more and more people are deciding the future is outside the city limits.

From the 2018 JLT Canada Public Sector Summit in The Blue Mountains, Ontario.
