Future of Cities

In the latest installment of our “What Happens Next” series examining the future of society, we visit Medellín, Colombia—a city that has reinvented itself over the past few decades, turning its violent past into a sustainable future by transforming its slums.

What Happens Next is a video exploration of the future from Quartz and Retro Report. It is a series of deeply reported short documentaries that examine radical transformations coming to central aspects of life in the near future, through the experience of people already living them. In this season of the series we will explore the future of cities, gaming, water, college and aging.
