Cities: How Humans Live Together (Hardcover)

By Megan Clendenan, Suharu Ogawa (Illustrator)



If you could design a city that would be both a great place to live and good for the planet, what would it look like?

Today, about four billion people--more than half the world's population--live in cities. This number could rise to seven billion by 2050. Cities face big challenges, including threats from climate change, food insecurity, a lack of clean water and rapid population growth, but they are also places where innovation and sustainability can thrive.

Cities: How Humans Live Together travels through time to explore questions like When and why did cities form? How did people access food and water? Where did they go to the bathroom? Peek into the past to see how cities have changed through time and explore what could make cities more sustainable and welcoming for today and tomorrow.

Megan Clendenan has lived in all sizes of cities and loves to explore new neighborhoods on foot. She has traveled to school or work by subway, train, bus, bicycle and even by boat. She is the author of Fresh Air, Clean Water: Our Right to a Healthy Environment and co-author of Design Like Nature, part of the Orca Footprints series. Megan lives near Vancouver, British Columbia, with her family, where she is learning to grow vegetables in her backyard. Suharu Ogawais a Toronto-based illustrator. Formally trained in art history and cultural anthropology, she worked for several years as a university librarian until her passion for illustration called her out of that career and into the pursuit of a lifelong dream. Since then Suharu has created illustrations for magazines, public art projects and children's books. She also teaches illustration at OCAD University in Toronto.
