INSPIRING FUTURE CITY LEADERS

The Future Cities Collaborative brings together policy, practice and research to inform our city leaders into inspired action to build great cities. The Collaborative is an initiative of the United States Studies Centre, with its primary role to promote sustainable urban development by supporting city leaders with leadership and strategic management tools, creating a forum in which mayors can share ideas and information, and develop skills and knowledge in building sustainable cities.
