Building New Urban Progress Together
New Urban Progress engages various actors coming from diverse environments to enable a vibrant exchange of thoughts and ideas. Its governance structure relies on a Steering Committee and a Sounding Board of distinguished urban experts and transatlantic analysts from Germany and the United States. Additionally, a group of young leaders from Germany and the U.S. will act as our Project Fellows. They will be part of a transatlantic exchange that takes a hands on approach by bringing them face-to-face with inspiring urban initiatives and projects in both countries. Rounding off our team will be well-known urban actors in Germany and the U.S., who will be invited to take on the role of Project Patrons.
The transatlantic Sounding Board is composed of renowned professionals from Germany and the United States. Their collective expertise and direction will help mould the work and results into impactful conclusions. Additionally, their diverse networks will ensure that there is sufficient collaboration and conversation between the project and other leading actors on transatlantic and metropolitan policy issues.
The Steering Committee gathers representatives of all three Project Partners: Das Progressive Zentrum, Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft and the Progressive Policy Institute. Members of this international team work together in order to ensure a timely and effective implementation of the initiative as well as the accuracy and relevance of the topics it tackles.
The New Urban Progress Patrons are mayors that are boldly leading cities towards an innovative and just future. Their main role is to generate excitement and visibility for our transatlantic dialogue. Additional Patrons will be confirmed.
