CITIES is an independent research organization, which focuses on urban processes analysis and
urban interventions. CITIES Foundation (http://www.citiesthemagazine.com) is based in
Amsterdam and operates across Europe, Asia and the US. It aims to catalyse urban explorers who
have the will to drive innovation in city life, policy and practice. Through its active research
themes, and by providing a platform for discussion and debate about global ideas, while planning
and implementing local projects, CITIES initiates change in local urban habits.
