24-Hour Cities Network Governance Workshop

24-Hour Cities Network Governance Workshop

The 24-Hour Cities Network is a group of urban leaders who, supported by City Possible, gather to share best practices and co-create new solutions to address the challenges cities face at night.

Pioneered by Mastercard, City Possible is a new model for urban innovation in which a global network of cities, businesses, academics, and communities work together to make the world’s cities more inclusive and sustainable.

24HourNation is pleased to have recently been invited to be a part of this network.

This insight report comes from a May 2022 24-Hour Cities Network workshop on nighttime governance.

Andreina Seijas, a world-renowned authority on the topic, guided participants, presenters and discussions through three primary myths of nighttime governance:

  • Shorter nights = better nights
  • More police means more safety
  • Nighttime is party time

The report also frames discussion and insights from three main case studies. These were:

  • Collaborative governments for creative solutions with Ariel Palitz, Senior Executive Director of New York City’s Office of Nightlife at the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment
  • Activating advisors and building knowledge partnerships with Michele Acuto, Director, Melbourne Centre for Cities, University of Melbourne
  • Citizen organizations and civic engagement with Mathieu Grondin, General Director, Montreal 24/24

When the sun goes down, city life does not stop. It only gets richer.

“From the $35.1 billion in economic activity generated in New York City to the laugh shared with a long-lost friend at a restaurant table in a public plaza in Bogota supporting cities at night has benefits for the city-wide economy and our relationship with our family, friends and neighbors.”
