Next City’s gathering of rising urban leaders will meet in Sacramento, September 30 through October 3, 2019. Forty Vanguards from around the world will be selected in a competitive application process. Applications will open in May 2019. Vanguard was run by Next City and the host organization Center for Regional Change, a catalyst for innovative, collaborative, and action-oriented research. Find out why we chose Sacramento.
