World association of the major metropolises
Under the theme " Global Challenges: Major Cities in Action" the XII Metropolis World Congress – World Association of the Major Metropolises – will unite decision-makers from major cities around the world as well as public, institutional, private, community and academic stakeholders in order to:
- Promote key political messages and declarations from the community of mayors worldwide;
- Showcase and acknowledge good urban practices from across the globe;
- Enrich the debate among the various urban management stakeholders through innovative networking practices.
Don't worry! Our five plenary sessions will be live streamed for those who would like to watch the discussions from afar.
This XII Metropolis World Congress will take place in the heart of Montreal, the celebrations for the 375th anniversary of the city and the Annual Assembly of the Association internationale des Maires francophones (AIMF), bringing urban leaders together.
Located in Canada, Montreal is an island geographically and a linguistic and cultural hub. The second-largest Francophone city in the world, Montreal is not only a cosmopolitan and intimate city, but also a major international city and founding member of Metropolis.
As a result, any international congress held in Montreal benefits from the undeniable asset of its reputation as an attractive destination.
