The 4th edition of the CITIES Forum, “2020-2030 the decade of the cities. Ten years to transform our urban environments into spaces for life” will be held from 29 September to 1 October in Madrid. Organised by IFEMA together with the Madrid City Council, it will focus on the coming decade as a turning point for the definitive transition of our cities to the paradigm of sustainability.
With over 200 speakers and nearly 70 partner organisations, the Forum will work on an agenda focused on the best national and international practices on urban development, managing the public space, mobility, social innovation and citizen engagement, city and children and air quality, amongst others.
In between events, the Forum organises spaces for exchange and debate, including working groups and laboratories. The latter consist of meetings with experts on different topics to exchange views on issues that impact urban change.
