We work with cities, towns and regions in developed and developing countries on projects that are designed to connect and mobilize people around technological and social innovations for urban sustainability. What we do includes peer-learning, youth-led development, urban greening, local economic development, energy efficiency, waste management, women's empowerment and sustainability literacy and education. How we do it is through participatory planning processes and capacity building. Find a list of projects below.
