Brussels Urban Summit 2023 is coming

12 Jun 2023

Where: Brussels

When: 12-15 June 2023

The challenges facing cities today are vast. Climate change, migration, urban growth and inequality are testing the fundamentals of urban life. At the same time, cities drive the innovation needed for a greener and more inclusive future. Our choices in the next few years will determine our future for decades to come – for our cities and beyond.

The Brussels Urban Summit (BUS) will bring together three international city conferences on 12-15 June 2023: the 14th Metropolis World Congress, the Eurocities Annual Conference and the sixth OECD Champion Mayors Summit for Inclusive Growth Initiative.

It will gather over 300 cities worldwide and more than 1000 politicians, experts and representatives of civil society to exchange ideas and envision a future of sustainable, affordable, and liveable cities.

We know that for all our diversity, cities worldwide share common challenges. Offering a varied programme of plenary sessions, workshops, side events and site visits, BUS will be a forum for exchange and debate. The summit provides a unique opportunity to engage in a global strategic dialogue to help define our shared urban future.

This unique gathering is an initiative of Brussels Capital Region, Eurocities, Metropolis and the OECD Champion mayors for Inclusive Growth Initiative.
