We invest in the voices of resilience and community centered regeneration to promote an ecosystem transformation to help communities successfully navigate the transition into the green and digital emerging economies caused by automation and climate change. We investigate the built environment and the populations’ quality of life, propose solutions to enhance the community’s ability to participate and contribute to the neighborhood and city economic vitality. We help communities prepare for shifting landscapes by optimizing the capabilities of artificial intelligence, spatial development and human capacitation to ensure health, quality living, and well-being for all.
We help cities build and sustain an inclusive smart urban economy that is climate change and automation resilient. By convening a cross sector governance consortium (CGC) we strive to understand the essence of the locale’s distinct North Star. We proceed by examining several layers of existing, desired and emergent land use, policies, programs, service models and initiatives in order to develop a comprehensive implementation plan as well as provide a sustainability portfolio. We don’t just make recommendations, perform analysis and project management the process. We identify and connect mission aligned investors and philanthropists in order to support the funding of our sustainability portfolio. Additionally, we co-design a platform for cities to share best practices and accelerate social impact.
GCD believes that the economic challenges of 21st century must be addressed in part by using data to gain a deeper understanding of trends and opportunities. Our goal is to ensure the inclusive smart urban economy is constructed and maintained. The cross- sector governance consortium must be able to conveniently access implementation status, be alerted to any challenges and understand the full scope of the conditions to inform decision making. Thus, we design tools tailored specifically to the locale, project, goals and reporting metrics to ensure stakeholders may pivot and make sound decisions.
