If you haven't seen the prior video on Arcologies, it may be a good idea to watch that video first (below) to get a better understanding of some of the principles behind Ecumenopolises.

In our second look at possible futures for Earth we examine the concept of Ecumenopolises, planet spanning cities homes to trillions. We'll examine concept in detail, starting with the first portrayals of it in fiction and extending on how Arcologies and other technologies we've discussed on the channel might be employed to create a Ecumenopolis and what they might be like to live in.
