World Cities Summit 2018
Liveable & Sustainable Cities: Embracing the Future through Innovation and Collaboration

The World Cities Summit is an exclusive platform for government leaders and industry experts to address liveable and sustainable city challenges, share integrated urban solutions and forge new partnerships. Over the past decade, the Summit has achieved global recognition with a credible gathering of the best minds in planning and urban development.

Themed “Liveable & Sustainable Cities: Embracing the Future through Innovation and Collaboration”, the 6th World Cities Summit in 2018 will explore how cities can be more liveable and resilient through better governance and planning, technology and social innovations, as well as collaborations with various stakeholders and with other cities. Through shared vision and active engagement, the public, private and people sectors can co-create innovative and integrated urban solutions for a more sustainable future.
