There has never been a better time to get involved in how the decisions about the future of your city are made. Why is this the case? Well, city governments and authorities around the world wish to develop agility and transparency in a rapidly changing global environment. They cannot do this without your involvement. Your taking part in decision making not only helps to improve legitimacy and build trust but also empowers city leaders to change the default position of being risk-averse and take calculated risks. Take ownership of the future of your city. Be part of the change you wish to see.
As cities try to embrace innovation in an effort to address major urban challenges, they are overwhelmed with issues such as budget constraints, flawed governance structure, lack of leadership commitment and talent, lack of trust among stakeholders (citizens, government, and private sector). As such, city authorities need to find ways to develop institutional capacity by investing in people and processes, usher in regulatory reforms to attract capital and human resources in an increasingly competitive landscape and involve citizens, NGOs, the private sector and academics in decision-making to improve legitimacy and build trust. Urb Your City aims to empower cities to implement these ideas.
