The article describes how the “Mayors Challenge” encourages cities to generate bold new ideas that solve urban challenges and improve city life. It describes how the Challenge asked the participating cities for one piece of advice to offer other cities. According to the report, they all highlighted the need for engagement with residents at an early stage and then all through a project.

Warsaw commented:
“Engage citizens and users in the design of your project early. This will help to avoid costly and time consuming redesigns by ensuring that early iterations reflect the real needs and preferences of your target population. It will also help grow the long-term demand for your product”.
