Shaping our Cities for the Future Conference: 31 January to 2 February 2018

30 November 2017

Cities around the world face many common challenges, but also remain places of inspiration and aspiration. The global task for policymakers, built environment professionals and agencies is to create vibrant and liveable cities where people can and want to live and work, but also where they have a voice to help shape its future in a way that supports the wellbeing of communities and individuals.


The conference on 31 January to 2 February 2018 will bring together 150 international member city representatives, cultural and economic agencies, urban designers and architects, researchers and others to explore the key issues facing cities today, new ways to build greater public participation in cities – especially in planning, design and regeneration – and solutions.  Participation available on a day session or full conference programme.


The third Open House Worldwide conference, presented by Open City, also celebrates the 25th anniversary of the first Open House and the launch of a major new piece of its research examining the global impact of this concept.
