World Class Philadelphia is a global positioning strategy for ensuring a sustainable, prosperous, and authentic future for the region.

Greater Philadelphia is at a turning point: we can be content to be a good region, or we can seize the opportunity to be a great one. Now is a time when business, nonprofit, foundation, and government leaders are eager to collaborate and propel our region forward. Although politics, geography, race, and economics can and do separate us, we all share the desire for a future that is world class – prosperous, sustainable, and unique to Greater Philadelphia.

Other metro regions as diverse as Chicago, Silicon Valley, and Salt Lake City have found themselves at similar turning points in their region’s development. Each has seized the opportunity to set long-term goals, form new collaborations, and begin to turn their goals into reality. The Economy League believes that to transform our region, a similar shift in how we think and work together is required. World Class Greater Philadelphia will effect this shift through comprehensive research, outreach, and engagement. Once we understand our region’s capabilities, needs, and desires, we can create a Global Positioning Strategy (“GPS”) a set of long-term goals and strategies that regional leaders can collaborate on to achieve.
