The Report presents the conclusions made during the Learning Expedition 2019

We are glad to present the Report, which became a result of collaboration between the GBD Innovation Club Learning Expedition Chicago participants and speakers. The three-day event brought together 20 leaders of 12 global business districts, including representatives from Casablanca, Chicago, Montreal, Moscow, New York, Paris La Défense, San Francisco, Tokyo and Toronto and was focused on Placemaking issues.

This Report presents the conclusions made during the professional exchange, and reveals not only the main trends in the development of the global business districts, but also identifies the main challenges (opportunities), which are the key to the evolution and transformation of our territories.

The Report also contains highlights of the GBD Innovation Club participants’ Placemaking projects. Each project showcases a unique relationship between global business districts and their social and economic environment. In each project, there are lessons about process, community engagement, partnership, and messaging which, we believe, could be useful for every recipient of this Report.
