Our philosophy


At Working for Cities, we believe that the city is a unique system, unlike any other form of organization, corporation or activity. A city is not a place, it is not a business, it is not an administration. We see the city as a dynamic system through which humans realise and act out their diverse aspirations, their goals and needs in life.

Cities tend to be splintered into sectors and industries, but Working for Cities takes an approach that seeks to synthesize rather than separate. Cities are the ultimate complex system and our working methods reflect this.The products and services, tools and models we develop are all tailored to the unique realities and logics of cities. By deploying a multi-disciplinary mindset that operates across sectors, systems and groups, we generate integrated solutions that really work for cities.
