Engaged Cities is a community of practice for news organizations with engagement-first approaches to serving U.S. cities.
Created by The Lenfest Institute for Journalism in partnership with New York-based newsroom THE CITY, this highly collaborative group works together to tackle common challenges, share innovative approaches, and serve as a sounding board for peers. The Engaged Cities community will also pilot and spread creative, collective solutions to help these news organizations serve their diverse communities in sustainable ways.
The Engaged Cities community holds monthly virtual discussions that center on engagement as a throughline to addressing editorial, product, revenue, and operational issues. Additionally, The Lenfest Institute facilitates active collaborations among members, engages in data benchmarking and research projects, and publishes relevant learnings to benefit the field.
