Cities are facing unprecedented challenges and often lack the resources to address them. Mayors are on the front lines and the best among them are tapping into one of the most underutilized resources they have – their citizens – to help them solve some of the toughest problems they face. In a time when trust between people and government is at an all-time low, these city leaders are bringing together the knowledge and creativity of their people, the power of corporate partners, and the expertise of nonprofit organizations to deepen the impact of their work and establish new realities for their cities. This panel will explore how city leaders are leveraging public-private-nonprofit partnerships to create stronger cities, improve lives, and build trust.
