Our approach

Get to know how we work

Every city faces its own particular opportunities and threats and its own set of strengths and weaknesses. Because of this, no city can simply copy any other city’s path into the future. The challenge is how to identify commonalities clearly enough to allow cities to decide whom to partner with, so that shared problems can be tackled together.
