Why we work the way we work
The Right to the City – an inspiration for a more participative shaping of the city?
Because business as usual is no longer an option
Pioneering systems modelling and data sharing platform – connecting developers, innovators and technology providers with city stakeholder demand for collaborative, risk-informed planning and investment decision making.
An inclusive model that supports positive impact at scale
We champion an open model that is built on multidisciplinary, cross-sector collaborations.
This approach encourages the cocreation and exponential growth of “collaborative advantage”, which translates into growing access to networks, expertise, resources, and learnings. All of which, are key to the successful codesign, implementation and rapid scale-up of systemic solutions.
The exponential challenges we face to deliver the SDGs demand exponential solutions. Incremental approaches, while important, are no longer sufficient.
This is why it is more important than ever before to get behind breakthrough innovators like the Resilience Brokers, and support positive impact at scale, driven by new ways of thinking, disruptive technologies and relevant business models.
