"I'd add that 'Stupid Cities' measure success by
quantitative goals: budget growth, the rise of new
industries, the number of new homes built.
Smart Cities also measure citizen satisfaction and develop
new policies to increase it"
On Urban Planning:
"As long as cities offer better opportunities for
livelihoods, rural-urban migration cannot be stopped"
– Lara Williams
On Productive Cities:
"Develop policies that ensures the interest of the
youths are put into consideration. It's quite
unfortunate that our cities in most parts of Africa
have neglected this aspect in its development policy"
On Equity and Prosperity:
"As a young graduate, I can say that youth are facing the greatest challenges in cities"
