Miami – The Urban Future Initiative

The Miami Urban Future Initiative is a joint effort between the Creative Class Group and Florida International University’s College of Communication, Architecture + The Arts (CARTA) to develop new research and insights for building a stronger, more innovative, and more inclusive economy in Greater Miami. The initiative engages top thinkers and researchers from across the region and the world to combine their knowledge with that of the region’s business leaders, economic development practitioners, and other key stakeholders. Its efforts are made possible thanks to generous support in part by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Through data-driven research and assessments of the key trends shaping the region, informing the broad strategic vision for the region’s private and public stakeholders, and bringing global thought-leaders and practitioners to think about the region’s future, MUFI seeks to provide the thought leadership and awareness to guide Miami’s evolution as a global city.

Over the last couple decades, Miami has benefited from the strategic action of visionary stakeholders, groups, universities and colleges, and mayors. It is now time to renew the region’s commitment to a regional strategy and to engage a broad region-wide conversation about a more inclusive prosperity that takes into account the mounting realities and challenges that face the region today. The time to act is now: if it misses this opportunity, the region risks losing the economic advantages it has achieved.
