Cities in which everyone is represented, everyone participates and everyone communicates equally. The extensive issue of the economic and social division manifests itself in all world cities and requires rigorous interventions to counteract the disruption of societies. In order to make cities more liveable, fairer, more sustainable, more climate-proof, more accessible and safer, WeMakeThe.City invites everyone who has something to do with cities to join in, and together, make the city of the future.
