The night mayor’s job is to breathe life into cities and to create a space for culture to flourish after offices close.Amsterdam Night Mayor Mirik Milan:
Mr Milan argues that every city larger than 200,000 people would benefit from a night mayor, and that it might help mid-sized cities hold on to young creative people. “People move to the big city because there are more jobs, but also because it’s more fun,” he says. “They are not coming to London for the weather.”
