Where is the city?

Shanghai housingThe worldwide urban rate is 50.5%.

In Canada and USA,  82% of population live in cities and suburbs.

The percentage of China’s population living in cities rose from 13% to 40.4% between 1950 and 2005. It is predicted to rise to 60.3% by 2030.

This is a photo of Shanghai housing taken by Dan Chung and posted @ http://www.guardian.co.uk. How does a child growing up in this city experience nature?

It was a full moon in August. I took this photo from my balcony on the 22nd floor of a high-rise building in Toronto which is home to 2.48 million people. Toronto’s face is changing very fast from green to a grey city. This photo is showing how the new townhouses and buildings are replacing the trees and green spaces. How does a child growing up in this city experience nature?
