Understanding OPENCities

May 25th, 2010

The British Council has launched the Understanding OPENCities report. Featuring case studies from Amsterdam, Auckland, Dublin, Madrid, and Toronto, the new report compares and contrasts their strengths and weaknesses, and highlights how each city has embraced openness in its bid to build a successful world brand.

Greg Clark, city expert and lead advisor on the British Council’s OPENCities programme, sees a bright future for cities with strong leadership and the determination to evolve and grow:

“OPENCities encourages the exchange of positive ideas between forward-thinking world cities. Creating an environment where locals and new migrants can live in harmony is another key element of the programme. For the first time, cities will have a specific way to gauge their openness and help their leaders develop successful strategies to compete on a world-stage.”
