Future of Cities Forum 2013

Please find photo gallery at bottom of page

In September 2013, 150 mayors, city planners, scientists, and representatives of civil society and the private sector came together in Hamburg and debated the key challenges and opportunities, focusing on strategies to develop and implement a cross-sectoral approach that balances pressing ecological needs with economic demands. The rich discussions over the three-day Forum resulted in the new report 'Regenerative Urban Development: A roadmap to the city we need'.
