Building a new urban practice.
Living Cities works with cross-sector leaders in cities to build a new type of urban practice aimed at dramatically improving the economic well-being of low-income people. We believe that these four core elements of our work are key to these ends:
Open-Sourcing Social Change.
We work at the intersections of information, people, story, and technology to accelerate the uptake of promising solutions to social problems.
We support ambitious data-driven, results-oriented cross-sector tables who work together differently to achieve large-scale results and enduring change.
We blend public, private and philanthropic financial resources in new ways to better meet the needs of cities and their residents.
Public Sector Innovation.
We work with public sector leaders to foster more nimble, collaborative, and data-driven local governments.
