Better Cities Now

http://bettercitiesnow.com

Better Cities Now provides news and insights for the people that run cities. At its core, it considers how the urban environments that nearly all of us call home can be made, well, better. This means making them better places to live and work, improving the way they’re governed and run, and reducing their impact on society and the environment. We don’t think cities are bad places, quite the contrary. But we do believe they could be a lot better.
