The 21 Best Solutions of 2021

The 21 Best Solutions of 2021

Next City is proud to release our latest Solutions of the Year special issue. This 80-page print magazine highlights the 21 best ideas for cities to emerge from 2021 — a year made infamous for its compounding problems of a pandemic, climate change, and threats to democracy.

Read about some of the year’s best solutions and help ensure they aren’t overshadowed by the size of our problems. Learn how guaranteed income programs are spreading between cities; how mediation programs are preventing evictions; how labor organizers are protecting workers; and more. This issue calls out climate responses that are also worth scaling up.

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