Our world is urbanizing faster than ever. For the first time, half the planet’s population - over 3.5 billion people - lives in cities. Another two billion will join them by 2030. This great migration is set to define urban life for generations to come.

The Cities Summit, hosted by Vancouver, will assemble international business and urban leaders to design the creative, practical solutions for a sustainable urban future. Join us to take part in the business of city building.
