Agent *reader*, I call upon you today as we’re at a time of crisis. Humans have annihilated 83% of all wild animals and are disrupting a natural climate balance, throwing us into a projected future that is 4.1 – 4.8°C (39.38 – 40.64 °F) warmer.
It’s our duty, as citizens, business owners, and employees to change the narrative for our children’s lives; to kickstart a transition into a more sustainable future, one that enriches biodiversity and a balanced climate. And for this, we turn our attention to sustainable cities.
According to the World Health Organization, the global world population living in urban areas is expected to increase to 66% by 2050, making cities a perfect place to transform society and support biodiversity and a balanced climate.
In this Process Street article, we’ll become time-travelers, zipping into the future to assess two separate predicted scenarios.
- Scenario 1: The continuation of human activity as normal.
- Scenario 2: Transforming into a more sustainable future, starting with our cities.
Today, we meet at a crossroad, where our future could go two ways. We’ll explore these two separate scenarios, before addressing the role of sustainable cities in creating a more desirable world. We’ll look at how businesses must adapt to survive in a future that is carbon-neutral with rich biodiversity.
After all, who wouldn’t want such a future? 🌻

Seat belts on, time-machine ignited, to the future here we come! 🕔🚀🕤
