The City of the Future is a crowdsourcing project aimed both at describing how advanced cities on Earth will look like in 2035-2040, and at identifying and finding solutions to the most significant problems and challenges that the urban population will have to face.
The project has two main objectives:
1. To predict the main trends in the creation, planning, functioning and development of the Cities of the Future in order to provide valuable information to city authorities, construction, transport, tourism and other interested companies and organizations, as well as to all people who are interested in forecasting the future.
2. To find optimal solutions to tasks that will make the urban environment of the future more comfortable, safe, creative and friendly to people and nature.

How should the approach to urban planning and organization of urban life be changed in order to reduce the risk of burnout in its residents?
