The annual Moscow Urban Forum will take place on July 4-7, 2019 in Zaryadye Park. This year the topic of the forum will be “Quality of Life: Projects for a Better City”.
As part of the Forum’s business programme, conference participants will discuss the contemporary notion of quality of life: how to make it the first priority of urban development projects and programs, how to create a compact and functional urban environment, and how to involve citizens and businesses into the implementation of city-changing projects.
Some topics for discussion within the business programme: housing, infrastructure, urban planning and architecture, transport, health, urban environment, well-balanced growth, technologies and services, ecology and sustainability.
Moreover, the first ever Urban Health International congress will be a part of the Moscow Urban Forum. This special congress will bring government officials, businessmen, experts, and the professional community together to discuss urban health issues.
As per tradition, there will be an exhibition of urban development projects and a massive urban Festival, an open educational and recreational programme for citizens.
Supported by the Moscow government, the Forum has been held every year since 2011 to reunite city administration, architects, urban planners, developers, heads of financial corporations, investors, technology start-ups, journalists and the people of Moscow.
