CityLab

October 22 – 24, 2017
Paris

HOSTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH

CityLab is a celebration of cities and city life. This one of a kind ​gathering brings together mayors from around the world, along with urban experts, business leaders, artists and activists.

This year we were in Paris, a global center for art, fashion, food and culture. The city ​offers an extraordinary backdrop for this change-making experience. For two and a half days, participants came together to explore solutions for the most pressing issues facing city leaders and city dwellers alike. Through panel discussions, one on one conversations, workshops and field trips, the event was a showcase for innovation and ingenuity. And while there are deep divisions in the world today, CityLab attendees are united by their ambition to make their cities more vibrant and livable.
