BUILDING A NEW FUTURE FOR THE CITY CENTRE
Join a new international network of city authorities and academics as we help to create sustainable futures for our downtowns and city centres.
In developed nations, many city centres are under pressure as shops close, commercial property is no longer in great demand, and many become ‘home’ for temporary residences for students and tourists alike. In developing nations, the demand for affordable housing, positive consumption experiences and permanent employment is similarly putting pressure of municipal governments to come up with more imaginative, innovative ways to ensure greater equality, improved wellbeing and economic growth.
Join the Future City Centre Network (FCCN) and collaborate alongside the initial partners from Newcastle and Glasgow (UK), Tshwane (South Africa), Joao Pessoa (Brazil) and Newcastle (Australia).
