The fundamentals of a city that cares

Cities and towns, no matter their size, bring together the majority of the social, economic, and environmental issues questioned and redefined today in light of climate change, other phenomena linked to the Anthropocene, and the resurgence of major global pandemics. As we begin to emerge from the health crisis, and as cities and regions experience their post-covid revival, it is urgent to redefine our visions of the sustainable city of tomorrow, as the concepts posited in the twentieth century no longer apply.

The city of tomorrow must reinvent itself in order to unite more than it divides: the sustainable city is a city that cares. It takes care of its inhabitants, particularly the most vulnerable among us; of its ecosystems; of its infrastructures; of its public spaces; of its businesses; and of its surrounding environments.
