Mazik Global has announced it is working with Microsoft on Microsoft CityNext, an initiative designed to help governments, businesses, and citizens re-imagine what is next for their cities. For the first time in history, more than 50% of the world’s population lives in urban areas and nearly 70% of people will live in cities by 2050. This ongoing migration creates unprecedented opportunities, but also intensifies problems such as aging infrastructure, hazards to public health and safety, pollution, crime, and traffic.
Through the Microsoft CityNext initiative, Microsoft and Mazik Global will help leaders to do “new with less,” by combining the power of technology with innovative ideas to connect governments, businesses, and citizens with city services that increase efficiencies, reduce costs, foster a more sustainable environment, and cultivate communities where people thrive.

“We are thrilled to partner with Mazik Global on Microsoft CityNext. Microsoft prioritises putting people and partners first in our initiatives and Microsoft CityNext is no different,” said Rob Bernard, Microsoft Chief Environmental Strategist and noted cities strategist.

We’re inspired by our diverse partner ecosystem and know that working together we can help cities realise their full potential.”
