Livable Cities heads to WUF9

February 2, 2018 Livable Cities

The HealthBridge Foundation of Canada Livable Cities team is heading to the ninth World Urban Forum in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!

The Livable Cities team will meet with local partners from India, to Brazil and Bangladesh to Niger to share best practices and strategize on how to promote healthy transportation, parks and public spaces, and local markets in cities. The team will also have the opportunity to learn from urban experts, policy makers and grassroots partners from around the world. 

The World Urban Forum (WUF) is the world's premier conference on urban issues. It was established in 2001 by the United Nations to examine one of the most pressing issues facing the world today: rapid urbanization and its impact on communities, cities, economies, climate change and policies. 

Follow along online with us @HealthBridgeCan on Facebook and Twitter using #LivableCities, #WUF9 and #Cities4All.
