The 2019 Chicago Forum on Global Cities

Loading Events

Each year, the Chicago Forum, hosted by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the Financial Times, raises provocative questions about the rising influence of global cities and their capacity to solve pressing global challenges. This unique international forum brings together leaders across corporate, civic, educational, and cultural sectors to share innovative solutions and insights on topics such as inequality, security, climate change, and disruptive technologies.  Hundreds of business leaders, mayors, scholars, and artists from more than 35 countries attend the forum to deepen their understanding of how cities are driving the global economy and influencing the world. Participants leave with new connections and are inspired with ideas to advance beyond the event.
