Caring Cities

Metropolis is a global network comprising more than 150 cities from across the world that, for almost 30 years, has provided support to cities, interconnects local leaders and academia with civil society and business and set benchmarks on how cities can be effectively managed and run. It meets annually to discuss issues garnered towards enhancing development and improving the lives of citizens within an urban development context. In July 2013, Metropolis held its annual meeting for the first time on African soil in Sandton, Joburg. The theme was 'Caring Cities': cities can exercise caring using the tools of planning, infrastructure development, social support, job creation and promoting participation.
