You'll remember our partnership with the New Cities Foundation in which we launched an "Urban Innovation" themed month, with the goal of sending up to two presenters to take part in this month's New Cities Summit -- we announced the winners in this post.

The Summit is taking place at this very moment, and the photos included in this post show PechaKucha co-founder Mark Dytham, as he talks about the PechaKucha phenomenon to the audience. Make sure to visit the New Cities/WhatWorks Channel to take in an incredible collection of urban innovation stories, told in the PechaKucha format.

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!
