Progrss for the city of the future

Humanity’s future will largely be determined by the cities we create today.

In 2008, for the first time in human history, the number of people living in urban environments surpassed the number of people living in rural areas—bringing cities to the forefront of priorities for policy-makers, designers, and environmentalists. By 2050, we estimate that the number of people living in cities will grow to 75% of the global population, adding tremendous pressure in a very short time on cities’ physical, social and political infrastructure.

Most striking, perhaps, is the fact that 60% of the cities of 2050 have not yet been built.

Cities & Connectivity: The Epitome of Progress

With challenges come great opportunities, and it’s no understatement to say that humanity’s future will largely be determined by the cities that this generation is creating today. But we need to act fast. And that’s where progrss comes in: by creating global conversations between cities, communities and innovators from the north, south, east and west, progrss is continually connecting the people and ideas shaping our urban future to activate all city stakeholders. That’s our mission.
