The 2018 edition 


Topic 
The theme “Liveable and Sustainable Cities: Embracing the Future through Innovation & Collaboration” will explore how cities can be more liveable and resilient through better governance and planning, technology and social innovations, as well as collaboration between stakeholders and other cities. Through shared vision and active engagement, the public, private and people sectors can co-create innovative and integrated urban solutions for a more sustainable future.
 
Side events
The week of 8 - 12 July 2018 will be filled with co-located events, receptions and launches by the WCS  sponsors and strategic partners, like IFHP, as they organise conferences and workshops to address specific urban topics. Many of these offer complimentary access to World Cities Summit delegates.

The Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize & IFHP

 
The Prize recognises outstanding international initiatives for city excellence by outstanding individuals and organisations who have contributed urban initiatives, policies or projects which epitomise foresight, good governance or innovation in overcoming the challenges faced by cities. Lecture and forum discussions will focus on four key pillars that are instrumental to the success of every city and its quality of urban life - liveability, vibrancy, sustainability and quality of life.
