2020 Wellbeing Cities Forum
A Global Conversation and Celebration of Wellbeing in Cities
[Postponed to September 15-16, 2020]
As the health of our event participants and local community is our priority, we have decided to postpone the event from June 16-17, 2020 to September 15-16, 2020. We continue to monitor the situation very closely and will inform our community of any changes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have provided guidelines and recommended actions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
The second edition of the Wellbeing Cities Forum will take place on September 15-16, 2020 at Centre Phi, Montréal. The highlights include the Wellbeing Cities Award Ceremony, panels, interactive workshops, and networking sessions.
Why is the Wellbeing Cities Forum important?
As the world urbanizes, 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 policy and planning.
We aim to encourage and highlight global initiatives to give rise to the wellbeing movement bringing together all urban players (public, private and non-profit sectors).
The Forum is a 2-day global event that brings together and rewards cities shaping urban wellbeing. A community of 250 international contributors will meet in Montreal, QC, to:
- celebrate the laureates of the Wellbeing Cities Award,
- showcase, discuss, and debate existing solutions to extend wellbeing in cities everywhere.
In solidarity with the current situation, we have decided to temporarily waive registration fees for the Forum.
