WHO International Healthy Cities Conference
The Conference offers a meeting point and platform for dialogue and learning about effective ways to deal with some of today’s most complex public health issues for urban and city leaders and practitioners as well as networks, agencies and institutions that are concerned with people, health, capacity-building, leadership, governance, equity and urban design. Special emphasis will be placed on learning about the value and methods of city networks as locomotives for innovation and change.

  • to demonstrate the importance of action for improving health and well-being at the local and urban levels;
  • to explore the key role of local governments and the implications of local leadership and governance for health;
  • to learn from the innovative and good practices of Healthy Cities and Healthy Communities initiatives across WHO Regions
  • to share visions and strengthen commitment for health and high-quality urban living.
