Park Won-soon is the remarkable Mayor of one of the world’s most remarkable cities.
Seoul, a city of 11 million, is now the most digitally connected city on earth, and home not just to world-beating technologies companies like Samsung but also thriving creative industries that export everything from music to soap operas.
Park Won-soon stood as an independent candidate three years ago and was re-elected in a landslide result last year on a platform of radical social innovation: overhauling the welfare system; promoting the sharing economy and far more citizen engagement in decision-making.
Widely seen as a leading candidate for Korea’s Presidency, Park Won-soon will speak and take part in a conversation with Nesta’s Chief Executive, Geoff Mulgan, talking about the challenges of leading a great world city and offering thoughts on the parallels with other world cities like London.
This event is being jointly hosted by Nesta and SIX, the Social Innovation Exchange (Park Won-soon was one of the SIX founders)
