Under the theme “Inclusive Metropolitan Cities and City-Regions”, the 2018 Metropolis Annual Meeting is hosted by Gauteng Province and will take place in Johannesburg. This year's most important Metropolis event is devoted to placing key issues of inclusivity on the global agenda of metropolitan areas.
The programme features 18 sessions with themes as diverse as: accountability, blockchain for sound metropolitan governance, environmental justice, gender policies for safety in public spaces, housing, inclusive mobility, job creation, land rights, settlement development, and more. It also includes the inauguration of the Forum of African Metropolises, five technical & heritage tours, four social events, and the Metropolis statutory meetings (for the members of our Board of Directors only).
