Learning Objectives

To define a world city, million city and mega city

To describe the causes (push and pull) of rural-urban migration

Describe and explain the global pattern of megacities, including regional variations in growth rates

starter obj 1 to define a world city million city and mega city
Starter:Obj 1: To define a world city, million city and mega city
  • World cities = A city able to have an effect on global affairs through it’s socio-economic resources and importance in global networks
  • Million cities = Metropolitan areas with a population in excess of 1 million inhabitants
  • Mega cities = Metropolitan areas with a population in excess of 10 million inhabitants

Sort the cards to match definitions and examples

Urbanisation –p114-15 blue bookObj 2: To describe the causes (push and pull) of rural-urban migration
  • What is urbanisation?
  • What causes urbanisation?
  • (create a definition plus a table of push and pull factors)
  • What is urbanisation?

Urbanisation is the increase in the proportion of people living in towns and cities.

  • What causes urbanisation?

Urbanisation occurs because people move from rural areas (countryside) to urban areas (towns and cities). This usually occurs when a country is still developing.

The UN predicts that by 2030 60% of the world's population will live in urban environments.

Obj 2: To describe the causes (push and pull) of rural-urban migration

  • Work in pairs
  • One partner read through and complete the comparison worksheet for Los Angeles (pages 110-115 Digby et al)
  • One partner read through and complete the comparison worksheet for Mumbai (pages -121 Digby et al/p116-117 edexcel text book)
  • Together agree three similarities and three differences between the process of urbanisation in Los Angeles and Mumbai

Obj 3: Describe and explain the global pattern of megacities, including regional variations in growth rates
  • Urbanisation is closely linked to development – areas currently experiencing the fastest urbanisation are NICs and LEDCs

Watch the following films.

Urbanisation lagos

Welcome to Lagos

As you watch take notes on:

  • Key facts and background information
  • Challenges and problems faced (video 1)
  • Opportunities provided by urban living (video 2)
