will be organizing the WeGO-ASEAN Smart Cities Network (ASCN) Mayoral Conference in Seoul from November 21-22, 2019. About WeGO The World Smart Sustainable Cities Organization (WeGO), established by 50 founding member cities in 2010, is an international association of city and other local governments, smart tech solution providers, and national and regional institutions committed to the transformation of cities into smart sustainable cities. Its Secretariat is based in Seoul, with regional offices in Chengdu (China), Ulyanovsk Region(Russia), Mexico City(Mexico), and Beyoğlu(Turkey). What is the WeGO-ASCN Mayoral Conference? WeGO is taking the lead to provide knowledge sharing and networking opportunities to ASCN, ASEAN’s initiative for 26 pilot cities—and counting—across the region. Plenary sessions will include keynote speeches from Korean ministries in charge of smart city development and diplomacy to ASEAN, along with heads of international organizations actively working to support ASCN. Program at a Glance Representatives from the Korean Government, World Bank and others will guide governors and mayors in how to tap into available resources to access the necessary funding and consultation for their projects. Mini roundtables tailored to the thematic focuses of the SCAPs—Buildings, Roads and Public Space, Traffic Management and Public Safety, Solid Waste and Wastewater Management, and E-Government and Social Welfare—will be separately arranged and closely facilitated, with the aim to provide each city with a clearer roadmap for smart city development.
