Manifesto
for a better city

Better cities can make our lives and our planet better.

Active Citizenry

A better city empowers us to take action and make meaningful change. It gives us a voice and sees us as active participants and co-creators of our urban environment.

Better Lives

A better city makes our lives and our world better. Besides providing for our basic needs like sustenance, shelter and safety, it also feeds our ambitions, hopes, memories, and all that which makes us human.

Circular Systems

A better city recognises that our actions have a ripple effect. By putting the city’s resources and our imagination to better use, we can create environmental, social, and economic ecosystems that are prosperous and sustainable.

Democracy & Equity

A better city holds space for a diversity of ideas and ideals. It is plural, equitable, and inclusive. It is fair and kind to us, and also makes us kinder to one another.

Ethical Practices

A better city is a virtuous city, one where its communities, companies, and government does right by the people, place and planet. Together, it serves the greatest good.
