Empowering Cities: A Blueprint for Urban Progress

City leaders share the same worries: Climate change, rising inequality, housing insecurity and health inequity, to name a few. They talk about working towards progress. But how can a city’s development in these areas really be assessed?

In this episode, New Urban Progress fellows Richard Lawrence Jr. and Maria Willett present their NOVA Cities Index, a blueprint with the goal of help city leaders focus on how to make their city more innovative, green, and equitable. They are joined by Katie Rosenberg and Julie Richier to debate how useful these metrics actually are and also discuss how urban power can bring progress locally, regionally and transatlantically. The session is hosted by Cathryn Clüver-Ashbrook.
