Cities People Love (est. 2020) empowers communities and decision-makers to act on the evidence that delivers the cities we want and need.

It is a social enterprise organisation focused on advancing public debate and promoting evidence-based decision-making that is in the public interest. It does this by connecting the industry, government, researchers and the community in a shared conversation about the city.

Cities People Love is a not-for-profit social enterprise, initiated by Hodyl & Co, who recognise that solving complex city problems is only possible together. The organisation is supported by a volunteer board and advisory team.

Through its online research platform, Cities People Love works to present important applied urban research and issues in innovative and readily digestible ways to enable a wide audience to understand the challenges and opportunities facing our cities.

Cities People Love has published contributions from a diverse and growing list of local and international researchers, industry professionals and government actors. These are leading voices working to improve our urban environments through evidence-based planning and policy.
