Megacity, megacity, but are we really bringing along the people who really make Lagos what it has become today? Why do we keep making lives comfortable for the rich to the detriment of those who just need a place to lay their heads?
In this poetic and emotional Ted talk, Olutimehin Adegbeye talks about how the Lagos state government keeps destroying the lives of thousands, to pave way for a “New Dubai”. She compels us to hold government and ourselves accountable for keeping our cities safe for everyone.
The only cities worth building, indeed the only futures worth dreaming of, are those that include all of us, no matter who we are or how we make homes for ourselves.
