Past event

The World Urban Forum (WUF) is the premier global conference on sustainable urbanisation. WUF was convened by the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) in 2001 to examine one of the most pressing issues facing the world today: rapid urbanisation and its impact on communities, cities, economies, climate change and policies. This is the first time the event will take place in Eastern Europe. 

WUF11 will be held in the Polish city of Katowice from 26-30 June 2022.

Representatives of national, regional and local governments, academics, businesses, community leaders and urban planners will be among the thousands of people expected to attend WUF11 which is co-organised by Poland’s Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy and the Municipal Office of Katowice. 

The theme of WUF11, Transforming our Cities for a Better Urban Future, will provide greater insights and clarity on the future of cities based on existing trends, challenges and opportunities, as well as suggest ways cities can be better prepared to address future pandemics and a wide range of other shocks.
