Global Sustainable City-Regions: Mumbai, Shenzhen, Reykjavik, Portland, Budapest, Glasgow and Rotterdam

This policy report, entitled ‘Global Sustainable City-Regions,' covers the work developed by the lecturer, Dr Igor Calzada, MBA, as the editor of the publication and students/participants of the first edition of the New Masters course MSc in Leadership for Global Sustainable Cities from September to December 2015 at the Institute for Future Cities in the Business Faculty at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow (Scotland - UK). Specifically, this policy report follows a two-sequential-module structure:
• The first module, entitled ‘Global Cities: Sustainability and Society,' consists of six methodological units.
• Thereafter, the second module, entitled ‘Public Policy, Governance and Strategic Change in Cities,' consists of five methodological units. The policy report focuses on three urban global issues in a comparative basis. The MSc was developed in a team-based dynamic by applying qualitative action research methodologies to understand and interpret each case and to benchmark and contrast with other cases that addressed the same global urban issue. As a result, the following three global urban issues and seven Global Sustainable City-Region case studies were selected. Each student/participant worked on each of them, as follows:
Global Southerners · Mumbai (Kirsten MacDonald) · Shenzhen (Ning Qiu) Resilient Contradictors · Reykjavik/Iceland (Christopher Dynes) · Portland/Oregon (Gemma Murray) · Budapest (Nikolett Watson-Puskás) Regional Networkers · Glasgow/Scotland (Gavin McAdam) · Rotterdam/Randstad (Frankie Barrett)
