CITY FACILITATORS

We believe that future cities should be sustainable cities. Cities that are planned with regards to the local habitat and community and according to environmental aspects in relation to waste and infrastructure. Cities, that are engaging and activating citizens and cities with a healthy public governance and economy.

City Facilitators engage in the development and facilitation of processes that contribute to sustainable cities. 

Our goal is to make urban challenges local opportunities.
