"Day of Cities"

8 April 2019

Geneva, Switzerland

The Day of Cities will bring together Mayors, urban managers and other key municipal practitioners for an exchange of views and knowledge sharing of good practices and successful planning strategies. In two roundtables, Mayors and Deputy Mayors will discuss approaches on how to create smart sustainable cities, focusing on ways to improve the quality of life of people and on improving efficiency of urban operations, services and competitiveness.

The exhibition "Smart Sustainable Cities", that will be held on 8 and 9 April 2019, will complement the programme of the Day of Cities and the 68th UNECE session. Member States, International Organizations, cities and private businesses are invited to come together to showcase their work on smart, sustainable and resilient cities, present innovative concepts, effective approaches in support of the SDGs at the municipal, national and regional level in the framework of an information fair.
