This Big City is an award winning blog home to thousands of articles about sustainable cities. We’ve written about everything from architecture to planning, public transport to cycling, public to digital space, and a few things in-between. And always with a focus on social impact.
Publishing for over 6 years, from September 2009 to November 2015, This Big City is currently on hiatus. We published over 2,000 articles in this time which have been read over 3 million times. Driven by a desire to reflect the reality of cities, This Big City is a multilingual collection of ideas and voices, contributed by writers from across the globe and presented in eight languages thanks to a team of editors. You’ll find content here in English, Chinese, Spanish, French, Italian, Farsi, Portuguese and German.
This Big City is a project by Joe Peach – a writer, editor and marketing professional with a passion for using creative communications for social good. You can reach him on joe.e.peach[at]gmail[dot]com.
But it wouldn’t have been possible without our hundreds of contributors, notably our editors Leonard Chien for This Big City 城事 , Alejandro Echeverria for This Big City en español, Elsa Burzynski for This Big City en français, Eleonora Taramanni for This Big City in italiano, Sepi Soltani for این شهر بزرگ, Igor Rodrigues for This Big City em português, Christian Fahl for This Big City auf Deutsch, and Lucas Lindsey for social media strategy.
