The Geneva Cities Hub (GCH, the Hub) is a ‘platform of urban actors. In strategic terms, the Hub is thematically ‘agnostic’ or ‘neutral’, because it addresses all themes that are of concern to those involved. In legal terms, it is an association under Swiss law, therefore a non-governmental organization (NGO). It will not constitute a new network of urban actors. It will operate exclusively within Geneva but will cooperate with global actors based elsewhere and will participate actively in the work of the Geneva ecosystem.
