David Miller, former Toronto mayor and leader of the group of the world’s largest cities fighting climate change, has been named Future of Cities Global Fellow by Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly).
“We are delighted that David Miller is bringing his international expertise and leadership in city-building to NYU-Poly,” NYU-Poly President Jerry M. Hultin said in announcing the appointment. “His insight will accelerate our historical mission of employing New York City as our urban laboratory in which we advance education, discovery and innovations that benefit the urban centers that are home to more than half the world’s population.”
“I am very pleased to join NYU-Poly,” Miller said. “Its long history as a respected institution for engineering innovation, its approach to education and its global collaborations with NYU create a unique opportunity to help its students — and the world — find solutions to pressing urban issues that can improve livability, prosperity and opportunity for all.”
