Mass migration to cities perpetuates urban-rural economic inequality, and can pose a heavy burden for material and social infrastructure. Professor Michael Keith, Co-Director of the Future of Cities programme, considers the practical demands of shaping the cities of the future, how cities can drive behavioural change, and how we could sequence the moral DNA of the new city to minimise future inequality.
