During the past June 20th-23rd, Stuttgart hosted the prestigious Urban Future conference 2023, Europe’s largest event dedicated to sustainability in cities. 24 delegates from the IURC Latin America programme came together with urban leaders, policymakers, and innovators from around the world to discuss and shape the future of sustainable urban development. The conference provided a unique platform for networking and collaboration, enabling 24 delegates from 11 different countries to connect with fellow city changers and exchange ideas.

Barranquilla (Colombia) and Fortaleza (Brazil) were honoured as panellists in high-level sessions at Urban Future 2023, where their representatives shared valuable experiences and best practices on urban renewal and sustainable urban development.
