The campaign for New7WondersCities began as a project to help cities identify various challenges of the future including “urban planning to metropolitan governance, from tourism to architecture.”
Last October, 28 finalists were announced and through a series of eliminations, the winners were finally whittled down to just seven. The final announcement was made on Dec. 7 in Dubai.
The cities’ project is the third “New Wonders” initiatives undertaken by Weber who recently named the “New 7 Wonders of the World” and “New 7 Wonders of Nature.”
