Connecting people and ideas for sustainable urban futures.
" The state of our cities will profoundly influence our future. The majority of people on this planet already live and work in cities, and by 20150, 70 percent of the world's population will be urban dwellers. Cities are our engines of innovation and creativity and they are also sites of concentrated resource consumption and social inequality.
Rapid population growth, a changing climate, and volatile global economic conditions, have raised important questions about how our cities work."
