Jerusalem 2050

This project sounds worthwhile (though if anybody knows good reasons why it isn’t, let me know):

Jerusalem 2050 is a visionary and problem-solving project, jointly sponsored by MIT’s Department of Urban Studies & Planning and the Center for International Studies with the participation of Palestinian and Israeli scholars, activists, business leaders, youth and others. We seek to understand what it would take to make Jerusalem, a city claimed by two nations and central to three religions, “merely” a city, a place of difference and diversity in which contending ideas and diverse citizenries can co-exist in benign, yet creative, ways. By extension, we hope to better understand conflict cities and find transcending themes and principles for addressing urban conflict.
