Just came across this report from 2014 - The Purpose City: A New Urban Model for a New Generation of Urbanites.
The New Cities Foundation, NBBJ and Imperative convened 50 influential policy makers, scientists, start-up entrepreneurs, business leaders, designers, planners and citizens who, in a mix of debate and hands-on design exercises, discussed and developed new models of urban living for a new generation of purpose-driven consumers, professionals and citizens.
Beautifully formatted with lots of food for thought on how we can turn our cities into hubs of purpose. Plus a look at the workshops and the results.
You can also find a list of reports about purpose including this one here.
