WHO International Healthy Cities Conference
People living in healthy, inclusive, creative and sustainable cities are healthier, safer, more productive and resilient.

Leadership is key. Mayors and city officials have the power to make a huge difference in the health and well-being of their residents.

During the past 25 years, the Healthy Cities movement has shown that most of the complex public health challenges of our times and opportunities for improving people’s lives and well-being can be most effectively addressed at the local level.

If you want to learn from the innovative and good practices of healthy cities across WHO regions, join us for our 25th anniversary conference in Athens, and let’s share stories about our vision and actions for human rights, equity and high-quality health in urban environments. Let’s explore together the role of local government leadership and governance for health.

We welcome you to join this Conference: a unique meeting point and platform to deal with all the highly complex public health challenges for urban and city leaders and practitioners, networks, agencies and institutions.
