We combine research, practical experience, and knowledge from local context to provide realistic and implementable solutions for small cities.
We convert data into meaningful information by leveraging on the networks of local knowledge in small cities to inform policy. We research the dynamic relationship between cities, citizens and city institutions and their role in shaping cities.
We create tools and platforms that aid decision making related to community and economic development for small cities. We also provide applied policy cycle support for citizens and city level agencies to collaboratively work towards shaping cities.
We enhance the capacity of agencies and individuals to use information, knowledge and decision making capabilities to shape cities. We offer innovative capacity building support in the form of policy simulations, master classes and custom-tailored activities.
