New7Wonders Cities is the third global vote organized by New7Wonders and follows the successful New7Wonders of the World and New7Wonders of Nature campaigns. “New7Wonders Cities will be a forum for discussing everything from urban planning to metropolitan governance, from tourism to architecture,” said Bernard Weber, Founder-President of New7Wonders, launching the campaign in 2012.
The great historical cities of Jerusalem, Venice and Kyoto, and the alpha world cities of London, New York, Mumbai and Shanghai, have enriched human society immeasurably. Newer metropolitan areas, from Dubai to Seoul to Cape Town to Sao Paulo, have become magnets for millions of people, and megacities that most of the world is not even aware of are sprouting across Asia and Africa. For the first time in history, a majority of the global population now lives in cities and New7Wonders Cities is the platform that enables you to vote for the 7 that are simply the best.
