Urban Journalism Institute
The Urban Journalism Institute
The Urban Journalism Institute is a platform incubated by LabGov.City to promote urban journalism as a tool to put forms of sustainable and inclusive development at the center of the current conversation on cities and their governance. The Institute aggregates journalists, communicators, experts and policymakers to share knowledge about, and debate on urban topics, as well as assist regional, national and local governments, NGOs, and foundations in the communication of urban strategies and projects on the field.
The Urban Journalism Institute is co-directed by Simone d’Antonio and Alessandra Pirera in partnership with UN-Habitat and other LabGov.City partners such as Luiss University and Georgetown University.

Changing the conversation about cities
Cities are the places where most of the challenges of our time are converging. Innovative solutions and experiences of urban governance and economy shared and discussed in a multilevel dimension can be influential in changing the approach to cities in national and local contexts worldwide.
Media have a decisive role in promoting urban debates at all levels. While they cover urgent contemporary trends, sharing news about economic crisis, refugees and migrants’ emergencies, women struggles, or natural disasters, they are talking about how cities are planned, managed and lived.
Exploring new communications tools to develop meaningful urban storytelling will contribute to spread new narratives about cities able to foster active participation of citizens and to push innovative social, economic and environmental urban policies. In this sense, cities are becoming the testing ground also to stimulate a more civic and substantive engagement of media in sustainable development processes at local and global level.
