METROPOLIS World Congress in Hyderabad

The METROPOLIS World Congress in Hyderabad will be a forum where the leaders of the world’s and urban India’s metropolises will work together over a period of four days in the company of representatives of the METROPOLIS Women International Network, the METROPOLIS International Youth Network, civil-society partners and the international community. This will allow them to discuss issues and exchange views with the young women and men who, at some time in the future, will be in charge of managing the world’s big cities. The 11th METROPOLIS World Congress will be an opportunity to hear from key elected representatives who, over the past 30 years, have helped to build and develop their metropolises. Furthermore, it will propose specific solutions for creating the City for All. These reflections will also represent METROPOLIS’s contributions to the preparation of the United Nations Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat III) and the post-2015 Millennium Development Goals.
