The Urban Social Forum is an annual event that provides an open and inclusive space for exchanging of knowledge, debating ideas, and networking between civil society organisations, activists, academics, and students working on pressing urban issues. Ultimately, the Forum is a truly public and democratic space for people to put forward alternative ideas and imagine ‘Another City is Possible!’
We invite you to be a part of the movement.

Greetings from the Organizing Committee of the 4th Urban Social Forum! Year after year the Urban Social Forum grows, in doing so it expands the conversation about better cities to include more and more people, communities, and ideas. The Forum believes in the need to urgently advocate for and promote a more socially just, sustainable and democratic city, and that active citizen participation is needed to achieve these goals.

We would like to invite you and your organisation to play an active role in this year’s Forum. There will be different ways you can participate, but ultimately you will have the opportunity to raise the awareness of, and connect with, people from across Indonesia about the issue that you care about, and promote new perspectives, ideas, and innovations.



The forum will have different panel discussions, workshops, performances, and exhibiting organizations
