• About

    Imagine Cities is a nonprofit organization devoted to making cities better. Better for the people in them. Better for the planet. Right now, and in the future. We focus on curating and sharing interdisciplinary research on cities to inspire innovators to push the envelopes of tired and typical approaches to solving city problems.

  • Mission

    By 2050, the United Nations estimates that 66% of people (or 6.402 billion) will be living in cities. With millions of people pouring into cities each year, communities are increasingly challenged to keep up with population growth while maintaining a resilient economy, ensuring environmental sustainability, and creating a desirable quality of life for everyone.

    Imagine Cities has taken up this challenge by committing to collecting, sharing, and analyzing research to better track and understand the complex systems that shape cities. With the support of our research, our incubator inspires, connects, and propels the public sectors, industry and civil society to create meaningful and sustainable innovations that make cities work better for people and planet.
