Together celebrating UN World Cities Day

Future Cities – Voices of Our City

We are living in the urban age. Cities house our businesses, citizens, and feed our economies. Two billion more people will be added to the world’s cities between now and 2050. Over the next 30 years, a renewed global system of connected and trading cities is being set in train with 600 leading cities, 30 mega regions, and 15 large metropolitan cities, all integrated by new routes and corridors, advanced mobility, and deep digital connectivity.

Exploring the Series

The cities covered are concentrations of people and consumers, systems and infrastructures, assets and amenities, anchoring key corridors of talent, trade, investment, and travel

Throughout the series you’ll be able to explore new local partnerships with poets that speak of the identity and spirit of each city, and engage with corporates and communities that help support the sustainable urbanism of our cities at a human, physical and virtual level. Additionally, you will be able to access our top key facts of each city as well as the 2020 HSBC City reports.

Now more than ever, investing in cities is critical as engines of recovery in a post-pandemic world, allowing us all to thrive.
