NEW CITIES FOUNDATION: New Cities Summit 2017
June 7, 2017—June 9, 2017$950
Now in its sixth year, the New Cities Summit is the leading global event on the future of the urban world, bringing together 800 of the top global thinkers, political leaders and practitioners shaping the future of our cities. The Summit is the flagship annual meeting of the New Cities Foundation.
The theme for this year’s summit is “Thriving Cities: The Building Blocks of Urban Wellbeing”. With the rapid growth of cities around the world, urban wellbeing is quickly becoming synonymous with global health and wellbeing. While cities offer the promise of improved economics and access to services, rapid urbanization has placed unbalanced pressure on the budgets and reach of city governments. It is essential we start designing cities as ecosystems of wellbeing, but what does this imply and what defines a ‘healthy city’?
