The Forum for Cities in Transition (FCT) is an international network of mayors, councilors, municipal officials, business people, and representatives of the voluntary and community sector. The Forum is an initiative of the John Joseph Moakley Chair of Peace and Reconciliation at the University of Massachusetts Boston. The Secretariat is shared by the Northern Ireland Foundation, Belfast and the Moakley Chair.
The FCT Network Fund is a means of providing practical assistance for FCT member cities to work together and deliver outcomes pledged at global events of the Forum for Cities in Transition. For example, this may include paying for a project manager for a few months, paying for physical materials, paying for venue hire and transportation costs to hold meetings.
