The Urban Age group was initiated by the Cities Programme at the London School of Economics and Political Science and the Deutsche Bank's Alfred Herrhausen Society. The group's principal aim is "to shape the thinking and practice of urban leaders and sustainable urban development." To accomplish this, they have coalesced around four key themes, which include labour market and work places, public life and urban space, mobility and transport, and housing and urban neighborhoods. On their homepage, visitors can learn about the conferences they sponsor, learn more about their partner organizations, and also read about the project team members. For urbanologists and their ilk, the "Publications" section is a place to definitely visit. Here, visitors can read essays on the economic history of cities, perceptions of safety in cities, and how to best govern mega-urban regions.
