The 3rd Forum of Mayors will take place in Geneva on 2-3 October 2023, under the theme “Urban regeneration towards 2030”.

The Forum of Mayors (FoM) is a formal UN body enabling mayors from the UNECE region to discuss global challenges that affect them, adopt declarations, and convey their recommendations to UN Member States. The Forum fosters a new and more inclusive multilateralism, where local actors like mayors can take part in global debates alongside States and develop collective solutions that respond to people’s concerns.

This year, the GCH is honored to co-organize, in cooperation with all UN Regional Economic Commissions, the Interregional Segment of the FoM.

For the first time, this segment will connect mayors from all UN regions and identify shared challenges in relation to “Urban regeneration towards 2030”. The segment will enable the FoM to go beyond the UNECE region and get a global perspective.
