Our Work

Research Program

Guided by our indicators and supported by systems thinking, we collect and share cities research from around the world in an effort to more fully understand the challenges and opportunities facing cities. We take a deeper dive into these topics through our webcast productions by inviting global leaders actively reshaping urban life.

Capacity Building Program

Since the late 1980s, humanity has witnessed rates of innovation never seen before in history. As we progress into the 4th industrial revolution, innovation will continue to transform cities. We bring together digital content that will not only give you the skills needed to make sense of a complex world, but also provide you with the tools to effectively respond in an effort to improve urban life.

Community Partnership Program

The greatest leaps in human progress has always been the result of our ability to work together in large numbers. Through our partnerships, not only do we want to connect community organizations with our resources but we want to strengthen communities by connecting them with each other. Through our partnership program, we will make community partners feel informed, empowered and connected to the resources to create meaningful change.
