Growing cities can only thrive by preserving communities

Dr Dana Heller, Chief Strategy Officer at Colu, a technology company using a unique digital currency to strengthen cities

Unsurprisingly, cities are increasingly focusing on urban regeneration projects, as a means to accommodate their growth. Too often, these projects put a strain on social resilience. Inner-city neighbourhoods and former industrial zones are being transformed from undesirable areas into locations where people want to live, work and socialise.
