Initiatives tab

If we want to see the concept of ‘caring cities’ take form on the ground in terms of the tangible ‘experience’ of our cities, we must also establish a way to measure and monitor our progress. A ‘care barometer’ would need to include those elements that reflect a caring city, and with this, ultimately, what it means to be an ‘equitable’ city.
