Moscow urbanistic forum "Megalopolis of the future." I have shown new space for life that to Moscow is to what to learn. Also is to what to study the Photo: ДОМ.РФ Every time before the Moscow urbanistic forum can hear skeptical: and about what to speak here? And why about development of megalopolises? Both why surely and always in Moscow? The VIII MUF which accepted from July 17 to July 22 the Zaryadye park, an exception didn't become. And therefore at once — about what to speak and why in Moscow. Megalopolises — hopes and fears человечестваСегодня in the cities already there lives the most part of the population of the planet, and daily 200 000 more people move to the large cities (by the way, as for the Russian indicators — at us 74% of the population of the country live in the cities today). By 2050 on Earth there will be more than 10 megacities with the population from 50 to 100 million people and 5 supergiants with the population more than 100 million people. Already today nearly a half of global economy is provided 10 largest megaagglomerations on productivity, and in the leading cities on income level per capita, such as London, New York, Singapore, Los Angeles, Paris, is made by 16% of world economy, thus that their cumulative population hardly reaches 4% of number of inhabitants of Earth. And in the closest 15 years of 52% of a gain of world GDP it is necessary on the largest cities of the planet. Annual expenses on their infrastructure by 2025 will step over a mark of 9 trillion dollars … It is possible to continue, but also told enough to recognize: how megalopolises will develop, in fact, development of humanity so the agenda of urbanistic forums with their analytical conclusions designated by the trends stated by hopes and unexpressed fears won't be exhausted still very much and very long will depend. As for "why in Moscow": today the Russian capital — the only real competitor to the so-called world cities by the size of the occupied territory, rates of development of economy, human potential, scale of infrastructure and is a lot of on what. Yes, Moscow is often called "vacuum cleaner" which very purely "removes" Russia, leaving behind only the little, getting to all other cities though similar reasonings more likely a tradition tribute, than reflection of the real situation. But at a plenary session of the first day of a forum the Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin during the another dispute with the chairman of Audit Chamber Alexey Kudrin who has suggested to limit after all development of Moscow has very accurately formulated a thought of importance of this global competition: "Any attempts to administratively limit development of the city will lead to the fact that we will lose the competitive center which competes not with Ryazan and Vologda — competes with New York, London and Paris! Moscow is not a problem, Moscow and the Moscow agglomeration are a property of Russia, the engine of her development". Words a budushchegomoskovsky urbanistic forum of this year are more than 300 speakers among whom there are leading urbanists, economists and the architect
