Transponder Issue 2
In this second issue of the Transponder, we explore how transatlantic cities confront global challenges and bolster the transatlantic relationship. As more than half of the world’s population currently resides in metropolitan areas, we see that cities are becoming the epicenter for political, economic, environmental, democratic, and social change. Cities have increasingly become places to test policy and implement change through groundbreaking approaches.
If we take a closer look at certain cities, we may find that the tools to bolster democracy and tackle global challenges are already available. From the boroughs of London, to the neighborhoods of Washington, DC, Bilbao, Austin, Charleston, and more– in this issue, we take a closer look at how cities are affecting positive change and strengthening the transatlantic relationship. Happy reading!
