Between next May 18 and 21, Live the City will be the first Metropolis Annual Meeting where on-the-ground experiences will be the focus and starting point for discussions about the major cities we want for the future.
Lately Buenos Aires has been facing a comprehensive development process, becoming a green, inclusive and innovative city, where citizen participation is an essential factor in local management. In 2015, the Government of the City of Buenos Aires wishes to share its experience particularly with METROPOLIS members and stakeholders.
Inclusion, Innovation and Sustainability will be the strategic thrusts of the event, which will put a special emphasis on real-life experiences will enable participants to get out onto the streets and obtain an integrated vision of urban management and will be able to relate what they have experienced with their own local contexts.
The event program will also include the METROPOLIS statutory meetings. Furthermore, at theVoice of the Mayors plenary session, we will present the METROPOLIS Declaration on the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III), which in 2016 will define the urban agenda for the coming decades. Finally, Buenos Aires will also be the site to conclude the METROPOLIS’s 30th Anniversary celebrations, with a Gala Dinner offered by the METROPOLIS President.
We hope to see you in Buenos Aires between 18 and 21 May 2015 to share these new ways to Live the City. To check all the information on this Metropolis Annual Meeting, we invite you to visit our website buenosaires2015.metropolis.org.
