Mark Thomas - New Mayor for Auckland

Visiting Thriving Cities In South Korea

It’s been fascinating to spend the first day in Songdo, the smart city of the future which is part of the Incheon metropolis in South Korea – just south of Seoul.

I’ve been invited to participate in the New Cities Summit on Thriving Cities.

as well as an innovative global university project…
