American Urban Innovators Are Filling Crucial Gaps

Together, Meeting of the Minds and Urban Innovation Exchange launched the Urban Innovator Series just 25 weeks ago with the support of the Kresge Foundation. Each week, we feature an “urban innovator” handpicked from around the United States. These are people changing cities, and we're excited to host two of our past innovators in a free webinar on June 8th.

Who is shaping the future of cities?

When we talk about cities, it's easy to focus on the macro – systems and networks, infrastructure and industry. But if you zoom in closer you'll find a very different story – one of passionate people working every day to shape a better tomorrow. This is why we're excited to share People Changing Cities, a new series to spread stories of remarkable individuals leading urban change.
