How do cities remain liveable, sustainable, and more resilient in these trying, unsettling times of pandemic and climate change?

The 8th edition of the World Cities Summit sought to address this with its theme of “Liveable and Sustainable Cities: Emerging Stronger”. The Summit is a convening point for global mayors, business leaders and knowledge experts to exchange and co-create city solutions for liveable and sustainable cities, and engages cities, businesses and experts at the highest levels to discuss how cities can emerge stronger through prolonged and unpredictable disruptions.

The 4-day in-person event comprised the main conference, which includes plenaries and tracks, and other key events such as the Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize Lecture & Forum, Award Ceremony and Banquet, WCS Mayors Forum, WCS Young Leaders Symposium, and an expo.

This year, the Summit also saw the inaugural in-person WCS Smart Cities Workshop, following the success of the virtual edition in 2021. WCS sessions, networking, physically co-located events and partner events also took place at the Summit, organised by partners and sponsors.

Through the plenaries and tracks of the main conference, delegates engaged with the theme on how cities can emerge stronger from contemporary disruptions across five tracks: Sustainable Financing, Smart Cities, Development and Planning, Urban Resilience and Liveable Future Cities.
