We are a research and action center working with public, private and civil society. We design and implement actions to promote cities and communities as habitable spaces for all to thrive. We work for more inclusive, sustainable, safe and resilient cities.
We facilitate and promote citizen collaboration
in solving community problems, creating a sense of co-responsibility, developing innovative community leadership, and strengthening interpersonal trust, social cohesion, and therefore local democracies.
“Cities are as vulnerable as their most vulnerable citizen.”
