The Cities Summit

You are invited to take part in The Cities Summit, a gathering of  international business and urban leaders to design the creative, practical solutions for a sustainable urban future. Our world is urbanizing faster than ever. For the first time, half the planet’s population — more than 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. How we develop cities in a manner that combines economic opportunity and sustainability is perhaps the greatest challenge of the 21st Century. It is also an unprecedented business opportunity. This Vancouver-hosted event will bring together business executives, urban visionaries and leaders from major cities to help shape this urban future. It happens February 1-2, 2012, at the Vancouver Convention Centre. For additional information and to register, visit
