  • MonikaPhilipp Rode The success of cities centrally depends on their ability to provide efficient access to people, goods and ideas. Reducing congestion and excessive travel costs in cities through enhanced public and shared transport, walking and cycling is a prime example of how economic development strategies can deliver social and climate benefits.
  • ArabArab Hoballah No sustainability if not with cities and at city level; and no sustainable cities if not through sustainable consumption and production, resource efficiency, innovation and transformative change with effective involvement of all concerned stakeholders. With the massive on-going and further needed infrastructures and housing, the World as a whole, and the Arab Region in particular starting with the United Arab Emirates, have a great opportunity to do things right towards sustainability. Difficult but not an impossible challenge;
  • AdibAdib Dada Biomimicry leads us to reconsider the world differently: like a system of relationships, exchanges, and not like a system of isolated objects and actions.
  • PaulDr. Paul Downton An ecocity, in symbiosis with its region, is a lifeboat for human civilisation, an ark for defence of the biosphere, a regulator of the global climate, and a fractal of our sustainable future.
  • RichardRichard Register The city is a problem ready to become a solution – if we choose As the largest creation of our species, the focus of most of our energy use, largest cause of climate change, and through its sprawl pattern of development an assault upon farmland and natural habitat alike, the city has profound negative impacts everywhere evident. Yet its creative services to society are profound, and its recent positive changes in a direction towards ecocities are appearing everywhere around the world. Good signs are legion. This might be our moment of opportunity, time to gather best: thinking and act with dedication, imagination, hard work and the courage to change. Enormous resources are still with us and knowledge has never been more ubiquitous and powerful. We can do it. But will we? Our conference is an opportunity to transform the city into a solution on an evolutionary scale – if we rededicate ourselves to our best effort and say yes.
  • DebraDebra Efroymson Our ability to survive on this planet in future depends on our ability to create genuine ecocities: cities without cars, that rely on trams, bicycles, and walking to move people; cities that grow abundant food within their boundaries without the use of chemicals; cities that deal intelligently with the soon-to-be obsolete word “waste”; cities that encourage and promote socializing among all classes, races, ages, abilities, and so on; cities that value the wellbeing of all people and the environment far more than the mere accumulation of wealth.
  • DebraHussein Abaza With increasing rates of population growth and urbanization, changing climatic conditions, accompanied by increased scarcity in water and energy, it is imperative that future urban settlements are designed to be economically viable, resource efficient, socially inclusive and acceptable, resilient, and environmentally sound and sustainable.
  • JosephProf. Joseph Alcamo It’s hard to imagine how the world can reach the goals of the new Paris Climate Treaty without the help of “climate neutral” cities
  • SteveDr. Steve Crooks Space is a critically limited resource in the coastal zone and its availability will change through time. Our success in meeting the challenges of climate change and land urban development will be measured by how manage and connect space for both natural and human systems
  • SteveSanjay Sridhar Mayors around the world are driving forward efforts that not only make their cities more sustainable, but that also transform them into healthier, more integrated and more economically prosperous places to live and work. At C40, we recognize than an Eco City is not just a good idea – it is a necessary reality for a future where the vast majority of the world’s population lives in cities. C40 looks forward to participating in the Eco City World Summit in order to foster the exchange of new ideas, challenges and solutions to global urban community, and in doing so help advance a brighter future for all
  • WaleedWaleed Khalil Al-Zubari The strong interdependency between water, energy, and food, and its anticipated intensification by climate change in the GCC countries makes it imperative that the water-energy-food nexus approach be adopted to benefit all three sectors, minimize risks and maximize opportunities among them, adapt to climate change, and serves the region in moving towards the goals of sustainable development
