    Originally from New Zealand, Scott Salmon has a background in alternative music but gradually became obsessed by the urban question, initially while working with the urban homeless as a community organizer, and subsequently as the director of a non-profit community development agency that aimed to respond to the challenges confronting marginalized urban populations and minority groups. Despite the realities of globalization he remains convinced that cities can be socially equitable, politically inclusive and economically viable – not to mention culturally vibrant and fun!
