WUF11 Katowice 2022

The World Urban Forum (WUF) is the premier global conference on sustainable urbanization. WUF11 will be held in the Polish city of Katowice from 26-30 June 2022.

The theme of this year’s World Urban Forum, convened by UN-Habitat and co-organized with Poland’s Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policies and the city of Katowice, is Transforming our cities for a better urban future. No city better embodies transformation than Katowice, Poland: a former industrial hub for mining that has become a centre of the knowledge economy, friendly to business, tourism and innovation. But while Katowice is stepping firmly towards the future, it remains loyal to its past.
