Message: "The 21st century will be the century of the city, following on from the 19th century, when national states were formed, and the 20th century, in which supra-national organisations like the United Nations, the European Union and the Bretton Woods Institutions took shape. The cities will be the first to be hit by all the known Global Challenges, such as mobility, housing, health, food and climate. Cities will have to find ways to provide their citizens with a safe, healthy and financially sound living, by taking a pragmatic and non-ideological approach. There is an opportunity here for urban politics to achieve this, not by viewing citizens solely as end-users and forcing solutions on them, but by collaborating with citizens in the use of modern technology, and working together with them, as co-developers of their own society".
