How do you make where you live a better place to live?
It’s an elusive, some might argue impossible question, that’s much easier to ask than answer. A question that perhaps helps explain why so many journalists focus on the mis-steps communities all too often take.
But equally important are the remarkable number of urban success stories from around the globe coming to fruition. Which is the focus of the writing you’ll find on this site: stories about impactful urban initiatives large and small, designed to help create more livable communities.
Hopefully, some of these initiatives will serve as a source of inspiration for you and where you live as well.
