Sociability is an economic engine driving the development of cities throughout the world. As more people seek an urban lifestyle, there is greater demand for places to eat, drink, listen to music and dance. More people can bring more vibrancy but can also place burdens on public safety resources and impact quality of life.

The Global Project is a transnational initiative to demonstrate RHI's nighttime economy team building and action planning process. This is a unique opportunity for cities worldwide to benefit from the expertise of top nighttime management experts.


 Project Outcomes

  • Selection and training of dedicated staff to be leading advocates for a safe and vibrant nightlife
  • Development of a citywide alliance to implement a consensus-driven action plan
  • Data collection to evaluate and monitor progress over time to enhance the safety, diversity of social options, and management of quality of life impacts
