    The traditional model of top-down urban planning and city building is no longer sufficient in coping with population growth, demographic shifts and a changing global economy. A media platform for inspiring human-centric development of cities, progrss will be showcasing inspiring, bottom-up urban innovation stories from across the world, in a seminar that highlights entrepreneurs succeeding in solving city problems and contributing to the creation of liveable cities. From Cairo and Lagos, to Atlanta and Glasgow, progrss seeks out inventive and collaborative solutions and unique models for city resilience, sustainability, placemaking, mobility and housing, to share with the urban eco-system.
