About The NYU Marron Institute of Urban Management

The NYU Marron Institute is an applied research center working with cities to take on critical challenges of urban living. As the world rapidly urbanizes, the urban environment is fundamental to our global future. Cities are central to climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts. They are laboratories for new models of governance, planning and innovation, and they represent diverse societies grappling with questions of equity, inclusion, and opportunity.

About Charter Cities Institute

The Charter Cities Institute (CCI) is a nonprofit dedicated to building the ecosystem for new planned cities. It was founded on the idea that a fresh approach was necessary to tackle humanity’s most pressing challenges: global poverty, rapid urbanization, conflict, migration, and climate change. Charter cities—new cities granted a special jurisdiction to create a new governance system—can be an integral part of the solution.
