Bolder thinking for urban life

Cities are platforms for people; they create opportunities for human connection and enable the exchange of knowledge and ideas. By shaping the places in which we live, learn, work and play we change people’s lives. This is both a privilege and a responsibility. How farsighted, bold and courageous we are prepared to be today sets the foundations for urban life in the future.
