Urban transformations for a new social organization

The sixth edition of the Foro de las Ciudades de Madrid will address the main urban challenges from the perspective of new economies and strategies that make possible changes in planning, decarbonization, circularity, digitalization, nature-based solutions, social innovation and new sustainable mobilities. With three auditoriums and more than 150 speakers participating in 26 round tables. In addition, the second edition of the Tree Award will be presented and the third edition of the Exhibition of Good Urban Practices will be held.

Foro de las Ciudades 2024 Labs

These are themed meetings whose main conclusions are subsequently disseminated by the media partners of the Madrid Cities Forum IFEMA and through the Forum's own channels (blogs, social networks, press releases from IFEMA...). These are open meetings, without previous scripts, which aim to achieve a fresh and close debate, and which serve to shape the thematic approaches to the closing of the programme of the fifth edition, which will be held from 18 to 20 June.
