IV Moscow Urban Forum: “Drivers of City Development”

The IV annual Moscow Urban Forum is quickly approaching. To be held from December 11-14, the forum is an international conference on city planning, urban development and related subjects. With the overarching theme of “Drivers of City Development,” this year’s forum will feature talks by Uma Adusumilli, Pablo Allard, Dan Hill, Sergei Kapkov, Maksim Liksutov, Antanas Mockus and Hui Wang, among many others.

The Forum will look at infrastructure, economy, social development and culture as the main drivers of city development, with day one starting by discussing the global development of megacities as well as the agenda for Russian city development. Day two will focus specifically on Moscow’s city agenda, while days three and four will feature the Forum speakers as well as special events for urban communities.

As Russia’s largest megacity, Moscow often serves as a testing ground for current ideas on urban planning before they are implemented in other parts of the country, making the forum a unique meeting place for the world’s city planning and urban development experts. For the first time the Forum will also have International Partner Cities, with talks underway with Singapore, Mumbai, New Delhi, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong and Mexico City. Each partner city will send a delegation to the Forum to share their city’s best urban initiatives.

In addition to the Forum, a complementary Festival will also take place, with the aim of serving as a platform for broader discussion of the Forum’s main themes and as a meeting place for Moscow residents and experts to debate the key issues facing the city.

Last year’s highlights included Archaeology of the Periphery, a research project led by Yuri Grigoryan of Project Meganom on the development of Moscow’s metropolitan area.
