MORROW Intelligence (MI) is dedicated to co-creating innovative and sustainable urban solutions at the intersection of governance and urban liveability.

 

At MI, we understand that ‘liveability’ is a multifaceted concept, unique to each city, and constantly evolving. Our mission is to provide leaders the tools, insights, and strategies to navigate the dynamic landscape of urban development.

Through our urban lens, we examine liveability outcomes from the ground up. Central to our approach is a deep dive into the governance practices that shape the daily lives of city dwellers. We understand that liveability is not a one-size-fits-all goal, but a fluid and bespoke achievement. By, examining the unique challenges and opportunities, we endeavor to offer tailored strategies and recommendations for achieving key liveability outcomes.

Whether it’s enhancing public services, promoting environmental sustainability, fostering community engagement, or any other facet of urban governance, we guide cities on their journey to a more liveable future. Our goal is to empower cities to prepare for and mitigate the challenges they face, ensuring that they continue to evolve and thrive in a way that aligns with their distinctive character and aspirations.
