Zurich/Switzerland: New7Wonders today announces the launch of New7Wonders Cities, its third global voting campaign, following the man-made New 7 Wonders of the World and the New7Wonders of Nature. Nominations can be submitted online at http://cities.n7w.com up to December 31, 2011, and people all around the world are requested to suggest their favourite cities to be eligible to be voted as one of the seven New7Wonders Cities. The participating cities will be announced on January 1, 2012.
Bernard Weber, Founder and President of New7Wonders, commented: “The world is currently experiencing a mass urbanization. For the first time in history, a majority of the global population now lives in cities. From the great historical cities of Jerusalem, Venice and Kyoto, to the alpha world cities of London, Paris, New York, Mumbai and Shanghai, urban living has enriched human society. Meanwhile, many newer metropolitan areas, from Dubai to Seoul to Cape Town to Sao Paulo, have become magnets for millions of people looking to make their fortunes, and megacities that most of the world is not even aware of are sprouting across Asia and Africa.
Given these dramatic developments, New7Wonders Cities will become a catalyst for discussing everything from urban planning to metropolitan governance, from tourism to architecture. This campaign is going to be very much in touch with the Zeitgeist and I am very excited about its potential to generate energy and ideas.”
