What inspires you about your favorite city?

In the next 30 years, two-thirds of our planet’s population will live in cities. Have you ever tried to envision the cities of the future? Cities are enlivened by people, and people enable change. So today, we are launched our redesigned website TheCity2.org, a gathering place for all urban denizens to share stories, videos, ideas and innovations related to urban transformation. We want to hear your city-related stories.

    Feb 5 2013: I like Chalon sur Saone, in Southern France. The city is calm and very friendly with many terrace restaurants, a beautiful cathedral and a very nice river. The people here are welcoming and they're always willing to say something about their place (if you ask them) . And in the streets, you can see signs which tell you something about the history of the city. It's also a modern place with great stores and almost everything you can find in an american metropolitan city.
