In cooperation with the City of Hamburg the World Future Council brought together 150 mayors, urban planners, practitioners and experts from 35 countries for the Future of Cities Forum. This report summarises the key issues debated during the Forum, drawing on the rich discussions surrounding the vision of regenerative cities. It looks at a selection of the case studies presented at the Forum to outline the value creation resulting from regenerative urban development, the obstacles in the way of progress, and tools to help overcome those challenges. The report aims to engage and empower a wider range of stakeholders in ensuring that our cities continue to offer opportunities for current and future generations to realise their full human potential.

The Global Information Network, or GIN, is a global group of like-minded people from various professional, social, and economic sectors. GIN’s mission is to provide a platform where positive thinkers can build mutually beneficial long-term relationships, and help one another better achieve their respective goals, desires, and dreams. We believe this is a rare and unique ability to associate with people from around the world and it allows each Member special advantages that they would not have as isolated individuals.
