World Urban Forum

Cities of Opportunities: Connecting Culture and Innovation


9 – 13 February 2020


Abu Dhabi, UAE

IFLA will be represented by Stephen Wyber, Manager, Policy and Advocacy


The 10th edition of the World Urban Forum looks at the linkages between culture, innovation and development at the local level.

Bringing together mayors, senior officials and experts alongside UN HABITAT, it will provide a space for key discussions about how to create safe, sustainable and resilient cities and communities. 

Libraries have an important role to play in this, both as guardians of heritage, and spaces where people and communities can interact and create bonds.
