The GOOD Cities Project

We create the cities we love, and the cities we love create us.

It’s not enough these days to run a city with fervor and dedication. Today’s electorate is more digitally engaged than ever before—so the mayor with the most Twitter followers might just spend the most time in office. According to this infographic, the Twitter presence of mayors from Sacramento to Newark extends their influence far beyond their local constituents. By keeping the lines of communication open, local officials create global communities passionate about the future of cities around the world.

The GOOD Cities Project is a five-month collaboration with Ford, exploring how we make our cities and how our cities make us. As part of the project, GOOD and Ford have commissioned cultural creatives across the country to help illuminate and celebrate the rich and vastly diverse points of view that make up each city's individual character. Each week, we will be exploring attributes that we believe are fundamental to living meaningful urban lives.
