Cities are engines for innovation and growth. People in cities tend to be more productive, wealthier, better educated, and more likely to start a new business. Cities also make better use of resources.

The Future Cities Special Interest Group is exploring the challenges and opportunities around shaping the urban environment for future generations in cities.
