We connect and mobilize citizens to be aware of how their city is developing and encouraging them to contribute.

A community that we've built through our network of cities around the world.

experiences

We host an array of dynamic experiences throughout the year to educate and challenge citizens within their own surroundings.

With experiences, we spark ideas, flag issues, and solve them collaboratively.

places

We see the city as our playground, in which our experiences can exist at various places within a city.

Using the city's creativity, we see this as an invitation to working together.

projects

We connect organisations & brands with cities, to collaboratively help to realize ideas that have an impact on our cities.

A collective intention between the city, brands and citizens.

1 network, 20+ cities, 100+ correspondents

Founded in 2014, A City Made By People is an international network of cities and local correspondents, exchanging insights on city life, creativity and culture. Through weekly features online, a bi-annual print journal, local speaker events, and collaborations/projects, our mission is to celebrate and support citizens making our cities more liveable.
