Global cities drive political, social, and economic policies and solve critical world challenges. Leaders in the major pillars of urban life – business innovators, education visionaries, cultural luminaries, civic pioneers – discussed how they can collaborate to improve their cities, and the world. Sessions addressed global cities as world economic drivers, the importance of art education, the foreign policy of cities, sustainability, security… the list goes on. Big issues. Big ideas.
