Chicago Forum on Global Cities

1-3 June, 2016. Chicago, US


The inaugural Chicago Forum on Global Cities, hosted by The Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the Financial Times, convened in Chicago from May 27 to 29, 2015. It brought together global city leaders of the four pillars vital to urban life—business, education, arts and culture, civics—for a multidisciplinary discussion on how they can collaborate to make their cities more economically vital, socially inclusive, and environmentally livable. The future of global cities will continue to be defined by the mayors and maestros, the scholars and CEOs, who attend and participate in this unique annual global forum in a unique global city. The second annual Chicago Forum on Global Cities will take place June 1-3, 2016.
