On October 29, 2017 in Shanghai, the École des Ponts Paristech joined the Alliance of Think-Tanks for Global City Governance (“Global Urban Governance Think Tanks Alliance - GUGTTA”) as a founding member of the University of Shanghai Jiaotong, City University of New-York, National University of Singapore, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Korea University.
At the initiative of Shanghai Jiaotong University, the GUGTTA alliance aims to connect think-tanks in world cities that are facing rampant urbanization and consequences such as breathless transport infrastructure, a degraded environment and housing become inaccessible. A call to re-invent the governance of world cities was thus launched in the "Shanghai declaration" signed by the 7 founding members representing the cities of Shanghai, Hong-Kong, Singapore, Seoul, New York and Paris.
