  • The 2013 Metropolis Annual Meeting, held in Johannesburg, was closed with great success on 19 July 2013, having drawn over 400 participants from different cities from around the world.

    Over the four days of meetings, the Caring Cities theme was present in all of the sessions held. Experts and political representatives acted as the spokespeople for their respective cities to make the meetings a discussion forum for the exchange of knowledge and to give the delegates present a first-hand account of their experiences.

    The next meeting of the Metropolis network will take place in Hyderabad from 6 to 10 October 2014 to mark the 11th Metropolis World Congress and the celebration of the Association’s 30th Anniversary.


  • In honour of Tata Nelson Mandela's 95th birthday, this morning the participants of the Metropolis Annual Meeting joined celebrations with the City of Johannesburg and the  Entokozweni Day Care Centre. Each delegate built a toy given to a child, while employees  painted the day-care centre in Alexandra.

  • The Metropolis Annual Meeting has just started at the Hilton Hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg. This is the first time a Metropolis Annual Meeting is held on African soil.
