As you may have already heard, we’ve decided to drop the paywall on our Forefront articles. Our archive of more than 140 original longform features and all our future feature articles will now be free and open. We lifted our paywall because we want to ensure that every person who wants to learn more about how to improve their city can do so as easily as possible. We know our reporting has the power to make change and we want that change to happen in all communities.
Whether we can afford to keep our features free depends on you. Without the revenue from our subscriptions, we are relying on you to step up and donate. Your donations will keep us producing the thoughtful, original reporting that urban communities need.
If you join today at any amount, you’ll get a Next City sticker, access to our monthly theme newsletters and downloadable e-books of our feature collections.
Make a $10 monthly donation, or a one-time $100 donation and we will add in a tote bag and invite you to our new quarterly conference calls with our editors and writers. You will hear first about the ideas, innovations and people on the front lines of urban progress.
Donations of any size are tax-deductible and go a long way in helping us to keep producing feature-length articles with original artwork and photography. We hope you will support us as we take this next step. With your help we will achieve our goal of reaching more readers and increasing our impact on cities around the world.
