About Us

for Cities is an international collective of urban practitioners and thinkers working in Asian cities. We provide an urban "repository" — an online idea bank — where emerging practitioners in the field of urbanism (architects, urban planners, civil activists, policymakers, researchers, artists, journalists, and more) can showcase their practices and ideas. From our repository, people can find inspiration, useful tools, happenings related to architecture and urbanism, and even future collaborators for their local projects. We select the finest ideas from the platform and introduce them to established, high-profile companies as well as local goverments and other related institutions who are looking for new inspiration in their projects and new practitioners to help them achieve their goals. We also host an annual city festival & exhibition in multiple Asian cities to share, test, and learn from these ideas.

About the Role

We also host an annual city festival & exhibition in multiple Asian cities to share, test, and learn from these ideas. Country ambassadors have the responsibility of communicating with the urban practitioners in your country, by sharing the philosophy of for Cities and making sure the submissions for our open calls are active on a regular and sustained basis. They will be given the permission to access and edit the idea pages of their home country to make sure the submissions of the country reach a certain level of quality. They also help us to organize the community meetups and events regularly together with the for Cities core team.

What You're Gonna Do

The ambassadors are responsible to promote the campaigns and spread the word to gather at least 5 idea submissions per month. They are also responsible for providing language support for submissions from their countries, making sure that unsung voices are heard and presented a right way.

About You

The ideal ambassadors will be from a background of any creative field (architecture, urbanism, design, art etc) with deep knowledge and understanding of not only urbanism but culture, language, and social issues of a given country. Good command in English is mandatory - as the writing, translating, and presentation skills are needed for assisting the other fellow urbanists to communicate their ideas on the Cities platform. Students are also welcome.

What We Offer

Country ambassadors will not be financially remunerated. However, we’ll give you the title and more responsibility within the community activities, as well as the right to commit to various local projects and annual exhibitions. They can host their own original campaigns, and have a right to join our occasional ambassador meetings to expand their global urbanist network. We can also provide you with a certificate if necessary.
