Sustainable Cities Network

A communications hub as “a portal to the future of cities” that are ecologically, socially and culturally sustainable.

For the first time in history the majority of the world’s population live in cities. How do we reduce the environmental demands of cities whilst maintaining and expanding the cultural and social vitality that can make life in the city so desirable and rewarding? In cities everywhere people are concerned about sustainability. 

Action is occurring at many levels and on many fronts. is a network and communication system to deliver information, to connect people and projects, to accelerate the city’s transformation across the world.
