The Forum of Mayors is a ground-breaking initiative allowing mayors to gather in a formal UN body in Geneva and discuss global challenges that affect them, to adopt declarations, and convey their recommendations to UN Member States. It is an initiative that fosters a new and more inclusive multilateralism, where actors like mayors can, alongside States, take part in global debates and develop collective solutions that respond to people’s concerns.
The Forum of Mayors is unique within the UN system and the GCH is proud to be a partner since its first edition in 2020.
The 2024 Forum of Mayors (ECE/HBP/2023/42 §75) will be held on 30 September – 1 October in Geneva. It will explore the outcomes of the Summit of the Future that are relevant to cities. Hence, the 4th edition of the Forum will be entitled “Cities Summit of the Future”. More info will follow soon.
