    Imagining a city of the future

    built on kindness.

    Meet the Kind Council. A human cyborg. A rapper. An entrepreneur. An LGBT TV host. A 15-year-old inventor. And a futurologist.

    They’ll be your tour guides on the Kind City Podcast: an interactive audio experience where you choose what happens next. Hear from them and others on topics like sustainability, inclusion, and dreams. It’s a great bit of inspiration if you’re struggling to complete the phrase: “The Kind City of the future will…”

    Once we’ve gathered all these submissions from around the world, we’ll use artificial intelligence to turn them into 10 founding principles. Essential things any city should do to be kinder in the future… and it’s all been made by you.
