I have created a new TED ED lesson to be used in higher education courses. Our TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures continue using this TED Talk in online discussions in Strategic Management, Information Systems, and Leadership courses.
Suburbs and rural areas are atracting a new generation of citizens who enjoy outdoors and the opportunity of exploring nature near their homes. New technologies are being used to provide services to these families. This TED Talk and TED Ed lesson give our students the opportunity to explore the future ouf our communities.
If you are thinking about country living take a look to this outdoors lesson.
Future tech will give you the benefits of city life anywhere | Julio Gil | TED@UPS
LESSON CREATED BY JOSE G. LEPERVANCHE USING VIDEO FROM TED YOUTUBE CHANNEL
Thinking about Country Living. Don’t believe predictions that say the future is trending towards city living. Urbanization is actually reaching the end of its cycle, says logistics expert Julio Gil, and soon more people will be choosing to live (and work) in the countryside, thanks to rapid advances in augmented reality, autonomous delivery, off-the-grid energy and other technologies.

What are the pros or cons about moving out of big cities? How companies have to modify their strategies to offer their services and products to these new communities?
These are the views from our window in our home office in North Florida. We can spot several fall leaves in our backyard forest. We live in Jacksonville, Florida, a city with many urban forests and urban parks. Productivity is great when you work and can explore your own forest during the breaks. There are many opportunities for outdoors learning.
The questions are: How close you are to products and services do you need? Where is the nearest hospital? What natural disasters can disrupt your life? How to prepare yourself for country living emergencies? Answers are coming.
