Interview with Adrian Benepe

At the World Cities Summit in Singapore, the IFHP Travel Squad met with Adrian Benepe, Commissioner of New York City’s Department of Parks & Recreation.

We asked Adrian Benepe three questions:

  1. In order to face the massive challenges that cities are faced with today, do we then need a whole new way of urban planning and urban leadership?
  2. What impact do you think that the succes of the PlaNYC will have on the urban planning agenda especially in the U.S?
  3. What keeps you up at night? And what is the most important recommendation that you would give city leaders in order to create more sustainable and liveable cities?

Here you can find the complete interview:
