CitiScope is my favourite website for urban news.

Let’s start the recommendation section with my favourite website and resource hub, “Citiscope”:

Independent journalists from all over the world report on urban trends and news. There is a fantastic newsletter. If you are interested in a short round-up of current urban developments and breaking news from cities worldwide, you should sign up for the CitiSignals newsletter.

Citiscope is THE online address to learn more and stay up to date on HABITAT III, the gigantic global conference by the United Nations on future urban development happening in October 2016 in Ecuador (here is my article on HABITAT III).
