World Cities Network: Round-tables and Workshops
Written by 23 April 2013on
World Cities Network is running a series of round-tables, practitioner workshops and forums to provide a breadth of interaction and sharing opportunities throughout 2013. We are currently engaging with the following cities: London, New York, Helsinki, Amsterdam, Turin, Barcelona, Glasgow, Tokyo, Hong Kong and San Francisco.
World Cities Network facilitates multi-disciplined private and public sector events throughout the year worldwide. We are gathering city leaders from planning, urban strategy, and economic development with real estate developers and investors, architects, engineers, and solution providers. Our collective desire is to drive the investment and delivery of infrastructure. As an independent and neutral organisation, we will help evolve practical partnership models, policies, and design solutions to increase the required investment and delivery of projects.
The network and the events we facilitate in various cities provide opportunities to build relationships, knowledge, and partnerships. Analysis of projects and their impact will be provided in a concise, impartial and practical format to ease understanding of the many complex and interconnected issues involved in delivering urban infrastructure improvements.
What makes our approach different?
Independent and international
World Cities Network is an independent learning network that is focused on the people, policies, and processes that enable urban infrastructure projects to be designed, commissioned, and delivered. We bring value by connecting internationally the people with the experience, ability and knowledge with those with the need to make their cities more resilient.
Public and private
Our strength comes from the quality and breadth of our network. Public and private sector organisations are involved from right across the industry. The organisations involved have world-class expertise in delivering solutions to urban challenges and are willing to share the experience in the knowledge that they will also benefit from the exchange of ideas.
Insights, tools, data, and connections are provided to network members through a ‘leadership toolkit’. This interactive online resource signposts and connects leaders with relevant and usable information.
