World Cities Summit - Singapur, Singapur. Del 8 al 12 de Julio de 2018.

The biennial World Cities Summit is an exclusive platform for government leaders and industry experts to address liveable and sustainable city challenges, share integrated urban solutions and forge new partnerships. Jointly organised by Singapore’s Centre for Liveable Cities and Urban Redevelopment Authority, key highlights of the Summit include the Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize, and the annual World Cities Summit Mayors Forum.

The Summit is anchored by the following:

World Cities Summit Mayors Forum – The World Cities Summit Mayors Forum is an annual by-invitation only global event for city leaders to discuss pressing urban issues and share best practices with one another. The peer-to-peer platform invites mayors and senior leaders from international organisations and the industry to exchange experiences in developing integrated urban solutions, building economic and environmental resilience, engaging with communities and sustaining a high quality of life in urban regions. In 2016, mayors and city leaders will hear from each other on innovations and changes they are implementing in their cities, and how these are managed.

Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize Lecture & Forum – The Prize recognises outstanding international initiatives for city excellence by outstanding individuals and organisations who have contributed urban initiatives, policies or projects which epitomise foresight, good governance or innovation in overcoming the challenges faced by cities. Lecture and forum discussions will focus on four key pillars that are instrumental to the success of every city and its quality of urban life - liveability, vibrancy, sustainability and quality of life.

World Cities Summit Young Leaders Symposium – The Young Leaders Symposium is an annual gathering of a select group of change-makers from diverse sectors who shape the global urban agenda where the decisions that leaders make today will impact more than half of the world's population. The World Cities Summit Young Leaders Symposium provides a platform for discourse on pressing urban issues and to launch initiatives to tackle the challenges of urbanisation such as planning for urbanisation and preparing cities to be inclusive by creating better access to opportunities such as affordable housing, sustainable transportation, accessible education and meaningful employment.

Plenary Sessions and Thematic Tracks –A series of high-level plenary sessions which provide strategic insights from senior city and organisational leaders on the interplay of leadership and governance and the latest debate on liveability and sustainability. Plenary sessions are complemented by thematic tracks for in-depth discussion of specific urban issues.
Business Forums - Business forums uncover upcoming city level projects, development hotspots, industry trends and policies in key markets. The Forums capture the energy of urbanisation and highlight opportunities for investment and partnership, translating discussions into actual business opportunities. Public and private sector panellists will discuss development plans and roll-out efforts, focusing on best corporate practices and risk mitigation strategies to meet the challenges and opportunities of sustainable urban development and management in China, India, Latin America and Southeast Asia.

Site Visits - Site Visits are specially designed half-day tours that offer World Cities Summit participants first-hand perspectives on how policies and ideas can be implemented successfully. Hosted by diverse public sector agencies in Singapore, these visits will give participants a behind-the-scenes look at real issues while providing unique, practical learning experiences.
