The Chicago Forum on Global Cities: Global Cities Driving the Global Economy

How will cities shape the future? How will the future shape cities? The world's global cities are converging in Chicago - UI alumni will be there.

UIC is delighted to partner with The Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the Financial Times on the inaugural Chicago Forum on Global Cities. The three-day forum will bring together global city leaders of the four pillars vital to urban life—business, education, arts and culture, civics—for a multidisciplinary discussion on how they can collaborate to make their cities more economically vital, socially inclusive, and environmentally livable.
