The Stockholm Chamber of Commerce in with collaboration the Brookings Institution is delighted to invite you to an exciting lunch seminar on the topic of “New Localism”.

Speakers at the seminar include recognized leaders, policy innovators and thinkers: Mayor Greg Fisher of Louisville, Kentucky, Angela Blanchard of Texas’ Neighborhood Centers Inc. as well as Bruce Katz and Jeremy Nowak, co-authors of the upcoming book The New Localism: How cities can thrive in the age of populism. The panel will be moderated by Maria Rankka, CEO at the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce.

What is “New Localism”?

Power is shifting in the world: downward from national governments and states to cities and metropolitan communities; horizontally from the public sector to networks of public, private and civic actors; and globally along circuits of capital, trade, and innovation.

This new localism is emerging by necessity to solve the grand challenges characteristic of modern societies: economic competitiveness, social inclusion and opportunity; a renewed public life; the challenge of diversity; and the imperative of environmental sustainability. Where rising populism on the right and the left exploits the grievances of those left behind in the global economy, new localism has developed as a mechanism to address them head on.

The rise of city-led problem solving requires city-led solution sharing. To accelerate that process, Stockholm is joining a diverse network of cities and city leaders, convened by the Brookings Institution, to help identify and spread the most transformative governance innovations emerging in cities around the world.
