Our Mission

NewCities is a global nonprofit committed to shaping a better urban future, headquartered in Canada.

We have a decade’s experience curating and producing innovative content about the most important emerging urban trends. We do this through our events, our knowledge-sharing platforms, and actionable research.

NewCities brings a ‘whole-city’ approach – we convene and connect the key stakeholders of the urban ecosystem: the residents, governments, academic institutions, civil society organizations, and business communities of a city. 

Our activities are inspired and supported by our global network of members, whose insights help us determine the most pressing topics in cities.
