Human Cities

Our recently launched Human Cities initiative highlights our commitment to improving, energizing and regenerating urban communities across the world.

We think cities across the world should be focusing on a number of key issues in order to create more "human" urban environments, including color, heritage, transport, sport and education, and sustainability.

Clinton Global Initiative
In September 2014, we reinforced our position as a key player in the area of urban resilience and regeneration by making a commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative. This commitment established a partnership with 100 Resilient Cities – pioneered by The Rockefeller Foundation.

The Economist Intelligence Unit
We've also partnered with the EIU, the business research arm of The Economist Group, to explore what makes urban areas sustainable and examine how cities can become more liveable. As well as showcasing the thoughts of an expert team of expert thinkers and writers on this website, a high-profile report will also be published in January 2015.

Using the information available on this page, you can learn more about the role we intend to play – and what we believe needs to be done – in order to generate and regenerate cities where we don't just live, but where we thrive.
