WON-SOON PARK: PRESIDENT OF WEGO

Greetings from the President City

Warmest greetings! The world has entered the Fourth Industrial Revolution which embraces the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, and Cloud Computing to increase productivity and work quality in industries. These new technologies are not only seen to impact economies, manufacturing, and trade, but are also perceived to serve as innovative solutions to address modern urban challenges.

WeGO was established in recognition that ICT and e-Government have substantial potential to empower and transform cities around the world to become “smart”, so that they can successfully tackle the problems derived from unprecedented urban growth. As WeGO’s worldwide membership has doubled in the past five years and as the focus of the world has increasingly shifted to cities, it is reassuring that WeGO will continue to grow in both size and relevance in achieving the future we want.

As the President of WeGO, I would like to re-affirm Seoul’s commitment to working closely with the WeGO Secretariat and its members in fulfilling the organization’s mission. It is our great honor to continue serving as the President City of this dynamic organization.

Sincerely,
Won-soon Park
President

Greetings from the WeGO Secretariat.

Every city has a journey. As the world population increasingly shifts to urban areas, the World Smart Sustainable Cities Organization (WeGO) has taken a leadership role in facilitating the transformation of cities to smart sustainable cities worldwide. WeGO’s vision of Smart Sustainable Cities for All is an inclusive vision for urban development based not only on the latest smart city technologies but also through community driven initiatives powered by citizen participation. Our over 200 members serve citizens and they hold the true key to innovation and the future of smart cities.

WeGO is an inclusive global platform for cities, companies, and experts to gather and share knowledge and ideas. It is a place for city-to-city cooperation, a place for cities and companies to meet and work on joint projects, and a rich source of knowledge and experience on smart sustainable cities for citizens around the world.

It is my honor to serve as the Secretary General of the World Smart Sustainable Cities Organization. I look forward to working with our extraordinary network of Executive Committee Member Cities, Vice President Cities, President City, and all our members to create a better future for urban stakeholders around the world. WeGO will be part of your city’s transformational and sustainable journey to a smarter and more livable city.
