The future of cities is important to everyone and to every sector of the economy, and not just tourism. Why is this? One reason is that the number of people living in urban areas is constantly increasing. Cities also produce most of the gross domestic product (GDP) in countries. Along with that, they are the greatest sources of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and have the most influence on climate change. What then are the prospects for cities in the decade ahead? There are so many prognostications on the future of cities that it can be difficult to distil their main points. The authors therefore chose to blend inputs from a variety of sources to produce a commentary on future urban directions. This chapter therefore divides the contributions to this debate into academic and other.
