ABC40 Honor Roll – Students Focus on “Cities”

WILBRAHAM, Mass. (WGGB) – The Wilbraham-Monson academy has taken on “The City” as their theme this year. Students focus on local global importance of the Urban landscape in a year long program. This follows a recent study by The Rockefeller Foundation that predicts nearly 75-percent of the world’s population will live in city centers by the year 2050.

The students will use the book “Triumph of the City” and try to answer whether cities are the best hope for the future. Students will hear from speakers, visit various  cities and take on specific projects.

WGGB encourages readers to share their thoughts and engage in healthy dialogue about the issues. Comments containing personal attacks, profanity, offensive language or advertising will be removed. Please use the report comment function for any posts you feel should be reviewed. Thank you.
