World Cities Summit 2022 - Liveable and Sustainable Cities: Emerging Stronger (31 July - 3 August)
How do cities remain liveable, sustainable, and more resilient in these trying, unsettling times of pandemic and climate change?
WCS 2022 seeks to address this with its theme of Liveable and Sustainable Cities: Emerging Stronger. The Summit is a convening point for global mayors, business leaders and knowledge experts to exchange and co-create city solutions for liveable and sustainable cities, and will engage cities, businesses and experts at the highest levels to discuss how cities can emerge stronger through prolonged and unpredictable disruptions.
This 8th edition of WCS will be an in-person conference. The 4-day event will comprise the main conference, which includes plenaries and tracks, and other key events such as the Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize Lecture & Forum, Award Ceremony and Banquet, WCS Mayors Forum, WCS Young Leaders Symposium, and an expo.
This year, the Summit will also see the inaugural in-person WCS Smart Cities Workshop, following the success of the virtual edition in 2021. WCS sessions, networking, physically co-located events and partner events will also take place at the Summit, organised by partners and sponsors.
Through the plenaries and tracks of the main conference, delegates will engage with the theme on how cities can emerge stronger from contemporary disruptions across five tracks: Sustainable Financing, Smart Cities, Development and Planning, Urban Resilience and Liveable Future Cities.
