Together we'll build better cities

The Atlas is a free online community for local government leaders to browse case studies, follow topics and crowdsource ideas and advice.

The Atlas envisions a world where cities are safer, smarter and more sustainable because city officials have quick, easy access to all of the solutions and partners they need to solve their toughest problems - problems like citizen engagement, climate change, and mobility.
