Our Mission

The Consortium for Sustainable Urbanization is a New York based, non-for-profit organization 501(c)(3) formed to promote ​a better understanding of the role of sustainable urbanization and resilient design in the planning of our cities.

Our purpose is to advocate for responsible and enlightened planning and design. We believe that a cross-sectoral approach can reduce the negative impact of mass migration to cities and improve the quality of life for all. We are committed to make urbanization sustainable.

We connect the global thought leaders concerned with urbanization in order to exchange ideas in high-level meetings and public forums. We disseminate information on-line, in print and in conferences. Our focus is on replicable ideas and concepts, best practices and speculative proposals.
