World Urban Forum (WUF)

The World Urban Forum (WUF) is an international conference of experts which was launched by the United Nations in 2001. The aim of this biennial meeting, organised by UN-Habitat, is to agree on one of the biggest issues of today's world: the ever-increasing urbanisation and the related challenges for cities and municipalities.

Under the leadership of Lord Mayor Dr. Peter Kurz, the City of Mannheim has been actively participating in the World Urban Forum since 2018 with a delegation of experts and has presented the city's activities to achieve the UN sustainability goals.
