about us.
what we do.

Global Urban Futures is a learning network of scholars and activists who are changing the conversation about urban policy. GUF highlights the major challenges facing cities around the world; rising inequalityuneven growth, and climate change.


We believe that cities are central to these problems, but also hold the key to their solutions. We encourage an approach to urban issues that consider the economy, the environment, and society jointly, not separately – and fosters ambitious new ideas and solutions. With partners from civil society and policy circles, we are fostering debate and contributing evidence to the development of the new urban agenda, including the Sustainable Development Goals, COP 21 and Habitat III.  


The Global Urban Futures Project is located at

The New School University in New York City.
