Seizing the Urban Moment: Cities at the Heart of Growth and Development

The next three decades will see the largest increase in the world’s urban population in human history. By the middle of this century, 6.5 billion people will live in cities, up from 4 billion today.

We are living in an unprecedented urban moment of opportunity.

On June 9 – 11, 2015, the New Cities Foundation will gather 800 of the world’s leading decision-makers, mayors, CEOs, entrepreneurs, thinkers, artists and innovators in Jakarta, the vibrant capital of Indonesia, for the fourth edition of the New Cities Summit.

Joining us once again, the Global Cultural Districts Network – a federation of global centers of arts and culture – will weave in cultural conversations relevant to the Summit’s overall theme.

The New Cities Summit is the leading global event on the future of cities. Previous editions of the Summit have been held in Paris, Sao Paulo and Dallas. For more information on the Summit, please watch the 2014 highlights film or visit the 2014 Summit website.

More information on the Jakarta New Cities Summit, including the speaker program is available here.
