World Urban Forum 11

The Liveable City of the Future

Germany at  World Urban Forum 11 | 26–30 June 2022, Katowice, Poland

The World Urban Forum (WUF), established by the United Nations in 2001 is a biennial conference attended by countries from all over the world addressing the rapid urbanisation worldwide. The conference provides a unique opportunity for exchanging views and experiences on sustainable urbanisation internationally.  

Especially the climate emergency, the massive disruption and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cities and communities, the growing inequalities and ongoing conflicts in Ukraine, Syria, Yemen and across the world have amplified the urgency of securing sustainable urban futures.
