Since almost a month, we are proud publishers of A City Made By People journal, Issue 3. We took learnings from our previous issues, number 1 (2016) and number 2 (2017), which resulted in this beautiful Issue 3.

What has changed?
Actually, a few very important things have changed:
- Issue 3 is smaller (17cm x 21cm), so it's easier to be taken with you or send to others
- We're featuring 15!! cities, giving our network the possibility to contribute insights from their cities.
- The following cities are featured: Amsterdam, Bucharest, Chicago, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, London, Madrid, Manchester, Melbourne, Minneapolis, Paris, Seattle, Stockholm, Tokyo, Vancouver.
- We add more color by collaborating with talented illustrator Emmy-Koos Meijer. Her work is available in our store!
Which topics around liveability?
We also were wondering, how do we structure content from 15 cities? Well, we decided to share these stories across 4 different chapters:
- What We See
- Who We Meet
- Why We Create
- How We Progress
Very clear and straightforward, an inspiration and angle we will explore further across all our channels.
How was the launch in Amsterdam?
Mind-blowing, buzzing, heart-warming... one to never forget. Please enjoy this impression video by Jan Arsenovic.
Will you launch in other cities of the network? And where can I purchase Issue 3?
Yes, there are plans being made by our teams in other cities to officially launch the journal, such as Chicago and Hong Kong. Hope more will follow soon, but we have already send batches of journals to various bookstores around the world.
But you can also buy them directly via our store:
How can I be involved?
In every way possible. We're looking for cities, correspondents, project opportunities, additional bookstores, hotels/ bars to collaborate with, enough to sum up...
