The New Cities Foundation published videos from New Cities Summit 2012 which held in Paris on May 14-16, 2012. The Summit aimed to place the city at the heart of the global discussion.
It mixed high-level conversations featuring some of the most recognized global urban thought leaders and decision makers — mayors, CEOs and business leaders, academics, architects, technologists, media leaders and entrepreneurs — with innovative demos and interactive thematic workshops. Workshop topics included: mobility, the creative and connected city, the just city, water, greener buildings, infrastructure finance, and regional sessions. China, India and Latin America are a particular focus area. The Summit also highlighted the modern urban utopias and experimental cities that are a rich urban laboratory for future cities.
