4 New Champions City Series | LA Creates 17 October 2013 Los Angeles, California Key Note Speakers After hearing a brief summary of the event Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Professor Klaus Schwab offered their insights on the NCCS LA Creates Event and the future of our cities. Mayor Garcetti encouraged the group to not rely exclusively on technology, but also be determined to have the will and courage to work for the future of the communities we live in because, “the way forward is local.” Professor Schwab brought an international perspective to the event. In his estimation countries and cities in the future will be less categorized as “developed” or “developing,” and more often identified as “high innovation” and “low innovation” cities and regions. He stressed that Los Angeles and California could not flourish while the rest of the world struggles and suffers. California has a message to bring to the world: You can do it, and the core of it is entrepreneurism, ingenuity. 3
