10th World Urban Forum
The Tenth Session of the World Urban Forum (WUF10), organized by UN-Habitat in Abu Dhabi from February 8-13, 2020. WUF was established in 2001 as a high-level, open, and inclusive platform to address rapid urbanization and its impact on communities, cities, economies, climate change, and policies. In 2019, WUF9 had 24,330+ attendees–incl. 460+ speakers and 120+ exhibitors–from around 160+ countries. The WUF9 Report is available here.
WeGO has partnered with UN-Habitat to extend access to and opportunities at WUF10, and is accepting expressions of interest from mayors and other local leaders, as well as representatives from the public and private sector, to attend as moderators, speakers, and exhibitors. We will also arrange matchmaking meetings with smart city stakeholders by request and will work to secure sponsorship, subject to availability.
