For this reason, the Alfred Herrhausen Society (AHS), together with the London School of Economics (LSE), set up its Urban Age project.
Urban Age analyses the problems facing mega-cities, brings mayors, architects, city planners, scientists and NGO's together and enables them to learn from one another. An international network of competence has been growing since 2005 - a mobile think-tank - with the goal of finding better solutions for our cities.
As there was no Urban Age conference in 2010, the Alfred Herrhausen Society and LSE were organising together with the Brookings Institution the “Global Metro Summit – Delivering the Next Economy” in December in Chicago.
The Urban Age conference about “Cities, Health and Well-Being” took place on November 16–17, 2011, in Hong Kong. This year it was in partnership with the University of Hong Kong.
Since 2010 LSE Cities a new centre of urban excellence has been created to develope new programms of research, education and outreach that cut across disciplinary boundaries.
As part of the Urban Age conferences, the Deutsche Bank Urban Age Award distinguishes exemplary partnerships dedicated to improving the standard of living in their cities.
