CityMakers® is the global platform for on-site and advanced training in good city-making practices.

Our mission is to transform territories by connecting city-makers from all over the world in features cities, for learning from their praxis and inspire changes in their communities. We train in the art of city-making to local governments, social organizations, entrepreneurs, leaders and professionals in related sciences. In addition, we train in the transversal soft-skills of multidisciplinary teamwork, leadership and decision-making. Our means are the 'labs', spaces of shared knowledge and unique urban experiences, where the city is the classroom; where city-makers are always global, with multiple backgrounds and approaches; and where the training is in real time and the knowledge is always updated.
