The Conference on Future of Places was held June 24 to June 27 in Stockholm 2013. More than 200 people from 50 nations participated.  Next conference will be held in Buenos Aires 1 – 3 September 2014.

The forum in Stockholm was the first of three conferences that will lead up to Habitat III in 2016, with the overall aim of contributing to a New Urban Agenda around people and places.

The Future of Places forum will highlight how and why cities need to embrace a people centered approach in order to achieve positive urbanization and avoid falling victim to the negative attributes often accompanying urbanization.

Examples of best practices and future pipeline projects will be defined throughout the conference series.
