International Director - Jones Lang LaSalle
"Fascinating and successful case studies of smart and sustainable developments are multiplying in cities across the world. If we are to really leverage best practice and innovation, we need an organisation like World Cities Network to help practioners keep up to date with new solutions and to link together the many different disciplines involved in creating our urban futures. Having a central source of knowledge and a team monitoring new thinking will be of great value."
