The time has come to change the way we build African cities. But in order to bring about change, we need to unite and to allow City Changers to inspire others. This is the spirit of I'm a City Changer in Africa. City Changers are the mayors, city-level decision makers, civil society actors, entrepreneurs and experts, men, and women who believe that change is possible and are determined to make this happen.

It builds catalytic and transformative alliances by engaging the civil society, the business sector, the research community, and governments in a global movement of converging interests, providing a knowledge and action-oriented platform to address urban challenges
