Welcome to Rethinking Cities Ltd.

We are a small, independent and flexible firm of consultants advising clients from the built environment, education, health, and transport sectors.

We also instigate and undertake research, incubate and pollinate ideas, host events and seminars, and organise activities to promote better city living.

2016 marks our Tenth anniversary - we are proud of this achievement and would like to extend a big THANK YOU to hundreds of clients and thousands of residents and employees we have worked with over the last decade. 

From the left hand menu you can browse pages that will introduce you to our specific skills and view examples of our recent initiatives and projects.  From the right hand News box you can find out how you can get involved in current and future events organised by Rethinking Cities.

In May 2014, we launched 'Walk with the Mayor' - It is a simple approach to a tough issue, how to improve communications between city leaders and citizens to help build liveable, resilient and sustainable cities - if you have suggestions for a 'Walk with the Mayor'  then please use our contact form.
