The Geneva Cities Hub (GCH) has been invited to take part in the World Urban Forum (26-30 June, Katowice, Poland), convened by UN-Habitat. Held every two years in different parts of the world, the World Urban Forum (WUF) is the foremost global arena for discussions in the field of sustainable urban development and human settlements.
This year, the theme of the WUF is “Transforming Our Cities for a Better Urban Future”. It presents a strategic opportunity for multi-stakeholder cooperation in the implementation of the New Urban Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular Goal 11 (Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable).
The Geneva Cities Hub will be involved in two events focused on urban health and resilient urban services, in cooperation with international actors such as UN-Habitat, WHO, ICRC and others. More details will be provided on these events soon.
