Interview with Peter Newman

At the World Cities Summit in Singapore, the IFHP Travel Squad met with Professor Peter Newman from the Curtin University in Perth, Australia.

We asked Professor Newman four 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 are the potentials and risks with IT companies increasingly influencing urban planning agenda?
  3. What is the most important recommendation that you would give city leaders in order to create more sustainable cities?
