  3. 3. 32 A e c i v i tn e s S ctció i FIRST EUROPEAN MAYORS CONFERENCE Organised by: The LSE’s Cities Programme and CIDOB Foundation’s Aula Barcelona Sixteen mayors from large European cities met with urban experts from London and Barcelona with the aim of comparing projects and exchanging experiences. Each mayor presented an emblematic project from his/her city relating to real estate development and infrastructures with urban design, with a subsequent debate with the other mayors and experts. The goal of the conference was to allow mayors, scholars and experts to freely discuss the underlying tendencies that make up the emerging reality of the “Europe of cities” and to exchange views on and experiences with the interrelationships between urban design and urban society. The European Mayors Conference is a meeting of mayors, set in an academic framework with an informal tone, in which topics relating to the physical transformation of cities are discussed and are the centre of a high-level debate among mayors and experts, without any political, electoral or media determinants. Participating Mayors: Pawel Adamowicz (Gdansk), Sir Albert Bore (Birmingham), Sergio Chiamparino (Turin), Joan Clos (Barcelona), Gérard Collom (Lyon), Charles Gordon (Glasgow), John Fitzgerald (Dublin), Richard Leese (Manchester), Ali Müfit Gürtuna (Istanbul), Ken Livingstone (London), Soren Pind (Copenhaguen), Rosa Russo Iervolino (Naples), Peter Strieder (Berlin), Wolfgang Tiefensee (Leipzig), First European Mayors Conference › Francisco de la Torre Prados (Malaga), Michael Zampleas (Nicosia).

February, 7-8. London School of Economics, London PREP-COM FOR THE SEMINAR “FROM THE WASHINGTON CONSENSUS TO A NEW WORLD GOVERNABILITY” Preparatory Committee for the seminar for the Forum of Cultures – Barcelona 2004. The objective of the seminar is to try to review the Washington Consensus. In this preparatory meeting, we discussed reviewing, not redefining, this agreement since we believe that while certain elements of the original consensus are necessary for the correct functioning of economies, there exists the need to broaden both its objectives and its implementation. It is in this sense that it seems more appopriate to us to arrive at defining a “code of good conduct” in economic policy that will serve as a framework for a new, better world governability. The project, which is directed by Narcís Serra, has a motor group of Spanish economists (Guillermo de la Dehesa, Miguel Sebastián, Jordi Galí, Jaume Ventura, Ramón Caminal, Antón Costas, Joan Tugores and Xavier Vives) whose function is to advise and supervise the development of the project until its end. Also, Prof. Joseph Stiglitz and his team from Columbia University, along with the Initiative Policy Dialogue, is co- directing the project. Narcís Serra and Joseph Stiglitz June 2 and 3.
