WE WORK AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE
GLOBAL URBAN CHALLENGE

The fastest growing segment of the world’s population lives in informal settlements in cities of the ‘global south’. Today 1 billion people live in these self-build communities. By 2050 there will be 3 billion, representing 1/3 people on the planet.

For the past three decades we have worked hard to connect ideas, people and places to promote inclusive cities.

We Focus on Emerging Urban Leaders

  • Our newest initiative is transferring know-how and power to the next generation of changemakers in cities

  • Our icon for this is MC2 = energy, derived from Mega-Cities x Mega-Changes

  • MC2 was launched at Habitat III in Quito, Ecuador on October 18, 2016 [See More]

  • We gave AWARDS to six young leaders from Brazil, China, Cameroon, Nicaragua, USA and Argentina
