Global Expert Network

The Global Designing Cities Initiative is establishing an ongoing Global Expert Network to facilitate the exchange of ideas and best practices amongst local champions striving to shape world-class streets in their local context. The Network will empower knowledge sharing that promotes efficient mobility for all users, public health and safety, economic development, environmental sustainability and social and cultural value. Network members will be provided with an opportunity to contribute to the Global Street Design Guide (GSDG), to share resources and to participate in peer-to-peer mentoring.


Network Map

The network provides an opportunity to have a reach beyond the ten selected Bloomberg cities and will be a continually growing collective of global knowledge and expertise.

* As of 17th April, 2015 and it continues to grow.
