We live in complex urban ecosystems that shape our everyday existence. Rapid global urbanisation is creating unprecedented challenges that demand vision, foresight and innovation.

To make positive transformations possible, there are two core ideas that underpin our work and ambition:

Cities need to be smart & sustainable

Urban and industrial transformation requires more than just developments in infrastructure and technologies, but also demands new business models, policy frameworks, skills, education and long-term strategies. It requires government and industry to work together to develop solutions that make cities resilient and responsive to future needs and lifestyles.

We can create a brighter future

Foresight opens up new possibilities to catalyse innovation, economic growth, and societal well being. It is not about predicting the future, but a process of developing long-term options to underpin policy, planning, competitive positioning and decision-making.
