ABOUT

Global South is a socially-focussed, collaborative urban consultancy combining research, leadership and action in urban strategy, design and implementation.

We work with the most effective, skilled and committed teams, integrating diverse skill sets tailored to each project. We partner with public and private sector organisations, through project formation, design and delivery phases.

We pursue projects which encompass a shared commitment to:

  • Research, knowledge building and active learning for all participants;
  • Design excellence;
  • Civic responsibility, towards improved urban conditions;
  • Collaboration and an entrepreneurial spirit;
  • Sustainable process and outcomes.

The global UN Sustainable Development Goals and New Urban Agenda provide a guiding structure for our work.

Let’s work together.
