Cities of Seven Continents

Shaping the next Billion Seconds

C7’s mission is to find, support, and spread sustainability solutions throughout our world’s cities and communities.
We uncover successful solutions to shared challenges. We help foster their growth, and ultimately port them into other urban centers where they can have similar impacts. We achieve this through grassroots networking, investing, funding, and content creation.


A billion seconds

“A billion seconds” is a campaign to focus our collective view further into the future, centralizing ESG/SDG in the conversation. A billion seconds is around 30 years.

We are asking for support or participation, for a shift in the outlook on time to reframe the impossible, and create a long-term outlook to solve the possible together.

— Francisco Litvay

“C7 recognises that cities are the key nodes in our global society, and that if we can progress them fairly it will serve for the benefit of the majority.”

— Deborah Avila

“I’m inspired by C7’s aim to bring together cities and partners from all cultures with a focus on the best solutions they have to offer for shared challenges.”

— Kat Serlet

"C7 wants to elevate discourse to a problem solving mindset. We believe that we have more in common than that which divides us."

— Sam Lombardo

“I see two kinds of progress: a revolutionary leap of genius takes 10 seconds. Its methodical implementation takes one billion seconds. Acknowledging our debt to the latter, we always strive for the former.”

— Aleksa Burmazovic

“Cities of 7 Continents exists to break down information barriers. We utilize the idea that successful systems are transferable across our planet and that everyone deserves open access to growth.”
