This is a critical time for cities in the Global South, and across the world. A combination of population growth, a changing climate and ever-more complex city ecosystems means the need for positive change and transformation in urban landscapes has never been more urgent.


With a particular focus on the MEASA region, Sustainable Cities in Action Forum 2024 will unite urban visionaries to find sustainable solutions to their own cities’ challenges, while exploring the opportunities those strategies and innovations present beyond the region.   

Across two days in March, Sustainable Cities in Action Forum 2024 will welcome more than 500 strategic decision-makers and influencers in sustainable urban development from across the MEASA region and beyond. Sharing insight and expertise will be ministers and mayors, urban innovators, essential youth voices, and representatives from business, academia, multilaterals, non-profits and civil society. In short, all those who care about transforming the future of cities.

Discussions and sessions will centre on three key themes:

  • Heat Resilience 

  • Mitigation  

  • Adaptation 

Through  a City Leaders’ Assembly, panel discussions and keynote speeches, Sustainable Cities in Action 2024 will be a platform for transformational ideas and actionable solutions for  sustainable urban development. 


A connected series of workshops for delegates led by subject-matter experts will celebrate and catalyse collaborative efforts to find solutions for some of the most urgent challenges faced by cities worldwide.  


Running concurrently to the Forum, the Sustainable Cities in Action 2024 exhibition will excite and inspire visitors with its vision for liveable, sustainable and digitally enabled urban environments, offering further opportunities for connection and collaboration.   

Visitors can also explore Expo City Dubai, a mixed-use community built on foundations of social and environmental sustainability, and the physical legacy of the most sustainable World Expo in history.  

We invite you to join us at Expo City Dubai to discover sustainable innovations and strategies at Sustainable Cities in Action Forum 2024, an immersive and inclusive gathering of visionaries and critical voices driving positive change in urban contexts across the MEASA region and beyond.
