Sustainable cities: Foundations and our urban future  


European Foundation Center


Today more than half the world’s population lives in cities, no doubt due to the fact that 70% of the world’s GDP is generated within urban areas. A further two billion people are expected to become city or urban dwellers in the next 30 years. This rapid growth in urbanisation brings many challenges, not least around housing, employment, education, cultural heritage, mobility, urban planning and the environment. 

Foundations in Europe are no strangers to these challenges and are in fact intrinsically linked to cities and urban areas across the continent. Their independence and standing allow them to inject creative energy into developing more sustainable, socially and culturally inclusive and competitive towns and cities for future generations. However, in the current socio-economic context of Europe, more synergies and innovation are needed to ensure effective action on this multi-faceted and complex theme.
