Shaping Successful Future Cities report

We launched our Shaping Successful Future cities report, developed with The Future Laboratory, which builds a picture of what a successful – and unsuccessful – future city could look like, and the importance of creating people and planet-centric spaces by outlining our ‘Six Principles of Urbanisation’: 

  • Climate-prepared  
  • Resilient  
  • Desirable  
  • Responsive  
  • Equitable  
  • Polycentric 

We face a stark reality: if those of us involved in shaping cities – national governments, local government, businesses, civic society and citizens – make the wrong decisions now, we could be faced with cities that, in as little as ten years, are becoming unliveable. It does not, however, need to be this way.
