Urban Answers to Global Challenges

The Brussels Urban Summit 2023 is an initiative of the Brussels Capital Region, Eurocities, Metropolis, and the OECD Champion Mayors for Inclusive Growth Initiative. The event will take place from 12 to 15 June in the Belgian capital. 

The challenges facing cities today are unprecedented. Climate change, migration, urban growth, and inequality are testing the very foundations of urban life. However, cities also hold the key to driving innovation towards a greener and more inclusive future.

In response to these pressing issues, the Brussels Urban Summit (BUS) is set to bring together three international city conferences: the 14th Metropolis World Congress, the Eurocities Annual Conference, and the sixth OECD Champion Mayors Summit for Inclusive Growth Initiative. The event is expected to gather over 300 cities worldwide along with more than 1000 politicians, experts, and representatives of civil society.

The BUS offers a strategic global platform for exchange and debate, featuring plenary sessions, workshops, side events, and site visits. With a focus on sustainable, affordable, and liveable cities, the Summit serves as an opportunity to inspire innovative solutions and forge partnerships that will shape the future of our collective urban future.

Cities Alliance will be co-organising and engaging in various sessions and events during the Summit.
