The International Healthy Cities Conference is a unique opportunity to join mayors, innovators, political decision–makers and experts in the international community in forging greater health, well–being and sustainable development in cities and urban settings. It will provide a wealth of examples of pioneering initiatives; opportunities for learning, knowledge exchange and collaboration; and ideas and solutions to take home and apply to local challenges.   

The Conference is an important international gathering for political leaders, health professionals, city planners, engineers, design professionals, innovators and activists. It creates a forum for presenting progress and exploring the issues and challenges that will shape the vision for an invigorated future for the global Healthy Cities movement.   

Putting cities on a sustainable and resilient development path requires bold and transformative steps underpinned by new tools, data, ways of working and resources. By engaging leaders from health, environment, planning, transport, housing, technology, education, science and other sectors, the Conference aims to inspire delegates and to reimagine Healthy Cities in the context of tomorrow’s challenges. It will emphasize the role of cities in implementing the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
