Executive Summary

The majority of the world’s population now resides in cities, and the trend is only accelerating.

This presents great challenges — and great opportunities – for making a better world. Cities allow us to minimize our carbon footprint. They nurture innovation of all kinds. And they support a culture of diversity.

SPUR‘s annual report explores the potential of cities to solve the problems of our time. The San Francisco nonprofit invites you to learn more about the work it did this year in support of this vision.
