How do people live and move, What drives citizens each day and how do they contribute to making their city a better place? Let’s find out!


20 cities + 100 correspondents - A collective intention

Since launching A City Made By People in 2014, it has been our intention to build a global network of like-minded citizens. Correspondents who know that their cities are more than a collection of hotspots, and that the human, social context provides a sense of belonging, acceptance and direction on what is trending and how a city is evolving.


Social context - a sense of belonging, acceptance & direction

It’s people who give our cities life and meaning. From Vancouver to Melbourne, from Tricity to Tokyo, there’s something that binds and drives us, an urge to share our insights and exchange knowledge with fellow citizens. Through local speaker events, inspiring content (web + print) and valuable connections, it’s our mission to increase awareness around the cities we live in and that citizens feel more responsible about contribution.


Capture, show and share - an exchange of knowledge

With teams of enthusiastic city correspondents, we there create weekly online features content, host monthly speaker events and bi-annually publish a print journal.

Whether the stories are about passionate individuals or initiatives, our objective is to celebrate those who make our cities more liveable.
