The American Assembly's Nick Hamilton was honored to join 42 urban policy experts from thirty cities at the June 10-12  Next City's Vanguard 2013. The "Vanguards" compared experiments in building upon a city's unique set of assets and exchanged new civic engagement strategies. Young leaders from around the nation drew from the many examples of innovation in the legacy city of Cleveland, Ohio, including urban agriculture (pictured, on the right). They identified many common challenges and opportunities for continued partnerships.
