About the Event
Global Leaders in Urban Wellbeing to Meet September 15-17.
As the world continues to urbanize, and as 2020 has already showcased, cities are increasingly facing challenges of public health, economic development, social inequality, and environmental degradation. Urban leaders need to take an active role and transform urban life by placing wellbeing at the heart of their policies and planning.
This second edition of the [Wellbeing Cities Forum](https://events.bizzabo.com/wellbeing-cities-forum-2020/home) will connect NewCities' expansive network of local and international mayors, city leaders, corporate executives, and experts from non profits and academia, all committed to advancing urban wellbeing. The Forum will also connect and recognize the 2020 [Wellbeing Cities Award](https://newcities.org/wellbeingcity/2020-award/) laureates, with leaders of the five winning cities presenting their initiatives in the distinct categories: integrating nature and biodiversity; planning for better urban health; building a vibrant urban economy; supporting cohesive communities; and prioritizing wellbeing.
Founded in 2010, NewCities is an international, independent nonprofit committed to shaping a better urban future.
