This powerpoint, presented to the Council on Foundations meeting on October 27, 2003, highlights five trends affecting cities and metropolitan regions: Cities are growing while metros continue to sprawl; cities and suburbs are becoming more diverse; the geography of work, and of poverty, is changing; and metropolitan economies are continuing to restructure. The presentation also discusses some of the consequences of these trends and outlines policy areas foundations should be thinking about for the future.
