The 12th Metropolis World Congress, which will be held in Montreal (Canada) from June 19 to 22 of 2017, is seeking contributions for enhancing the programming and facilitating discussion among participants: mayors and political leaders, professionals, civil society and private sector organizations, and citizens.

Under the theme “Global Challenges: Major Cities in Action”, the Metropolis World Congress in Montréal hopes to get a hold on major cities’ new challenges and opportunities in a changing world where global and local issues overlap and where major cities are being called upon to play a greater role on the world stage. In the wake of the recent adoption of the New Urban Agenda, it is valuable more than ever to pool knowledge, expertise, experiences and resources in order to develop innovative approaches that are up to handling the local and global challenges that are calling on major cities’ leaders and populations.
