New Localism has emerged as the primary way the United States and many European nations solve hard challenges today: bottom-up rather than top-down, and driven by public, private and civic networks rather than delivered by government alone. Where rising populism on the left and right exploits the grievances of those left behind in the global economy, New Localism has developed as a mechanism to address them head on. This keynote will demonstrate the ways New Localism is being defined by a group of vanguard cities like Pittsburgh, Indianapolis and Copenhagen, which are inventing new norms of growth, governance and finance that are then adapted and adopted by cities across the world.
