People Building Better Cities: Participation and Inclusive Urbanization is a traveling exhibition that aims to exchange knowledge, build networks, and promote dialogue on the challenges of inclusive urbanization. In 2013 PBBC has been shown in Bangkok, Beijing, Chennai, Cincinnati, Delhi, Johannesburg, Mumbai, Nairobi, Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai and Sydney. While the exhibition focus is on developing countries, it speaks to urban issues in developed countries such as inequality, public participation in city making, and climate change.

Building on the work of Global Studio, an international educational program initiated in 2005, the exhibition documents community-driven projects that share a common goal in India, South Africa, Bangladesh, Asia and the USA: the promotion of inclusive urbanization to improve the lives of the urban poor through participatory design and planning. PBBC also presents an innovative approach to the education of urban professionals, and suggests a model for urban practice.

Working with Make the Road, a Spanish translation of PBBC will be shown at Midlands Beach, Staten Island January 16 – 26 2014 with a public program on January 25.

PBBC is a collaboration between Global Studio and the Center for Sustainable Urban Development at Columbia University.
