World Urban Forum 11 - 13.06.2022

Join us at the Eleventh World Urban Forum in Katowice, Poland from the 26th to 30th of June
The World Urban Forum (WUF) is the premier global conference on sustainable urbanisation. It was established in 2001 by the United Nations to examine one of the most pressing issues faced in the world today: rapid urbanisation and its impact on communities, cities, economies, climate change and policies.

Representatives of national, regional and local governments, academics, business people, community leaders, urban planners and civil society representatives will be among the thousands of people which are expected to attend the WUF11 in Katowice, Poland. The conference is co-organized by Poland’s Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy and the Municipal Office of Katowice.

Under the theme “Transforming our Cities for a Better Urban Future”, the WUF aims to present existing and future urban trends, challenges and opportunities. At this occasion, the CEMR is organising three sessions. Should you be interested in attending, registration is still possible until June 22.

More information on CEMR’s sessions at the WUF11:

28 June
09:00 – 10:30: “Designing integrated urban strategies and localising the SDGs: experiences from cities using the Referential Framework for Sustainable Cities tool”.
Discover and learn how the RFSC helps cities in designing, implementing and monitoring integrated sustainable urban development strategies and/or projects.

15:45 – 17:15: “Inclusive cities in times of crisis”.
This session will address key questions such as the way cities and regions compromise between long term objectives (carbon neutrality, achievements of SDGs) and social cost of such measures, and how to dialogue between different tiers of governance.

29 June
14:30 – 16:00: Networking event on “Shaping green, resilient and sustainable urban areas in Europe by 2030”.
This session will look at the necessary and relevant level of actions to achieve net-zero emission urban areas, possibilities for municipalities and regions to finance their green and just transition, and existing initiatives in Europe, amongst others.
The WUF11 will be a great opportunity to meet in person, as four members of CEMR’s secretariat will be present during the event, along with a delegation of European elected representatives. Do not hesitate to reach out to us if you are attending as well!
