About Us

The New Cities New Economies vision is a project under the Global Consortium for Africa’s Economic Development (Global Consortium). The Global Consortium is a Non-­governmental organization that was created to advance Africa’s economic development. The founders of the Global Consortium are social activists and scholars who are keenly committed to the development of Africa.

In joint partnership with the University of Johannesburg, the Global Consortium is currently establishing the New Cities New Economies Institute, which will carry out further detailed research around this vision. A detailed disquisition of the New Cities New Economies vision is contained in the book that was authored by Dr Tshilidzi Ratshitanga, which is available in different book and online stores.
