The 8th Urban Social Forum

Join us in imagining, creating, and affirming “Another City is Possible!”

Greetings from the Secretariat of Urban Social Forum! Year after year, the Urban Social Forum grows and expands the critical conversation about what kind of city we want and need, and how cities can be more inclusive of all kinds of aspirations, communities, people, and futures. The Forum was established, and continues to exist, with the mission to advocate and promote a more socially just, sustainable, and democratic city by creating spaces that encourage active citizen participation.

Although the space has moved online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our mission remains. USF continues to commit to providing a safe space for critical discussions and conversations on urban issues — an even more crucial endeavor now more than ever as we navigate through the impact of the pandemic and other persisting urban challenges.

If you are passionate about citizen participation and building a better city — we invite you to join the platform! You will have the opportunity to learn and connect with people from across the world about common issues and promote new perspectives, ideas, and innovations. Let’s work together to imagine ‘Another City is Possible!’
