The 20 Best Solutions of 2020

The 20 Best Solutions of 2020

Next City is proud to release our latest Solutions of the Year special issue. This 80-page print magazine highlights the 20 best ideas for cities to emerge from 2020 — a year when the collective challenges and hardships we faced meant that solutions were desperately needed and hard to come by.

Read about how how dividend housing allows renters to build equity; how a California group created a playbook for mental-health crisis response with no police intervention; how an “IKEA for parks” program  converts vacant properties to usable green space; and more. This issue calls out COVID-19 pandemic responses that are also good solutions to adopt moving forward into (what we hope is soon) a post-pandemic world.

Printing and mailing these magazines costs us about $5 per copy. But if you can contribute more to support the journalism, please do.
