World Urban Forum 2022
June 26 - June 30
The World Urban Forum (WUF) is the premier global conference on sustainable urbanization. WUF11 will be held in the Polish city of Katowice, and we are excited that our Managing Director, Lewis Akenji, has been invited to give the Keynote Speech and Inspirational Thinking at the Opening Ceremony.
The theme of WUF11, Transforming our Cities for a Better Urban Future, will provide greater insights and clarity on the future of cities based on existing trends, challenges and opportunities, as well as suggest ways cities can be better prepared to address future pandemics and a wide range of other shocks.
Katowice is prepared to host the WUF11 with a state-of-the-art congress centre, well-developed hotel facilities and transport network to welcome all the participants in June 2022.
