Kallipolis is a non-profit organisation for sustainable urban development.

Kallipolis started in 2006 with the aim of improving the liveability of human settlements both in Italy and abroad, with particular attention on transition and developing countries, following the objectives of UN-Habitat New Urban Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals, especially Goal 11 on sustainable cities and communities. The association focuses on the most vulnerable groups, which are now the motor of planet development, and believes that urban environments can actually become equity spaces of equality

Since its inception Kallipolis has promoted participatory and collaborative processes by working with local administrations, individuals, civil society organisations, private sector and researchers in Italy and abroad, with the aim of giving citizens more power over decisions that influence their lives, supporting public administrations, individuals and communities to work together to solve common challenges by accompanying the birth of projects, models, products and services.
