WUF11: Transforming our Cities for a Better Urban Future
The transformation of urban futures is at the heart of sustainable development for this and future generations. Young people represent the largest proportion of the world’s population currently residing in cities and urban human settlements; without looking toward the future and ways to make cities more liveable, more accessible and more equitable it’ impossible to make the right progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
From 26-30 June 2022, stakeholders from government, civil society, academia and the private sector will join UN-Habitat and its fellow UN agencies, non-government organizations and the Polish government in the city of Katowice. They will participate in Eleventh Session of the World Urban Forum, convened by UN-Habitat and co-organized with Poland’s Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy and the city of Katowice.
