When city leaders convene in Honolulu for the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ 87th Annual Meeting this week, they will experience first-hand how technology can unlock better access to social, economic and cultural opportunities.

“As many cities face similar challenges stemming from demographic and technological change, we realize that they are best tackled through sharing ideas and resources,” said San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo. “City Possible serves as a framework to join forces with other cities and partners so that our San Jose residents can benefit from learning best practices from around the globe.”

“We are proud to support the City and County of Honolulu in welcoming the nation’s mayors and in facilitating this important dialogue,” said Michael Froman, Mastercard vice chairman and president of strategic growth. “At Mastercard, we’re deeply committed to enabling cities to improve quality of life for all their residents – and to help cities around the world learn from places such as Honolulu and San Jose. The challenges are too big to think small – or tackle alone.”

Launched in November 2018, City Possible is a new model for urban collaboration to co-create, test, and scale solutions to address cities’ most pressing issues. Its members include more than 25 global cities representing a diverse mix of geography and size. By bringing together a complementary group of companies with unique strengths and resources such as IDEMIA, Willis Towers Watson and EVERFI, Mastercard is leading the way for a holistic approach to inclusive urban development. As one of the most recent industry partners, AT&T joins the City Possible alliance to help cities such as San Jose use technology to improve digital literacy and access. “As part of City Possible, AT&T will offer industry expertise on how cities can take a programmatic approach to urban tech solutions,” said Michael Zeto, vice president and general manager of smart cities, AT&T. “This will allow local government to provide residents the necessary resources that help strengthen digital literacy and improve access availability across the entire community – all while optimizing their investment in technology.”
