9 Civilizations Strategy

At the heart of BILD's strategy are the 9 civilizations. We are networking our partners all around the world in this 9 civilizations strategy. We have strategies emerging in 8 of the 9 civilizations:

Global Cities are a significant sub-element of our strategy, ultimately following the Global-City movement. We have launched a 30 center urban strategy for North America. We will unfold our Global City strategy in the fall of 2010.

Ethnic Diaspora Neworks form a third element of our global strategy. Built around the new global phenomenon called global tribes.
