It's been a month since the first PechaKucha Urban Innovation Month came to a close.

Dozens of projects were submitted from all over the world, from Buenos Aires to Vienna, from Lisbon to Vancouver. Each project is unique, but they all have one thread in common: they're all insanely passionate people looking to make life in the city better for the rest of us. 

The New Cities Foundation went through the over 30 submissions and chose two among them to be flown out to Dallas, Texas this June 17-19 to speak at the WhatWorks workshop at New Cities Summit 2014

At PechaKucha, we're always looking for new ways to bring out the hidden creativity in cities. Seeking out and celebrating the people who are making inventive changes to their cities is just one small step in that direction. 

We're extremely grateful to those who shared their projects with us, the New Cities Foundation, and of course those who have shown their support along the way. 

Keep an eye out for more exciting global search projects like this in the future!
