"As the world continues to urbanize, there is a growing global recognition that the solutions to climate change, rising inequality, and uneven economic growth must occur in cities. These problems are becoming more critical every day, yet there appear to be weak or misdirected responses by governments, international organizations, and thought leaders. 

The Global Urban Futures Project (GUF), a learning network of scholars and activists within the New School, was created to discuss and research the drivers of these growing concerns, and to contribute to the conversation about urban policy. The GUF encourages an approach to urban issues that consider the economy, the environment, and society jointly, not separately – and fosters ambitious new ideas and solutions."
