The Chicago Forum on Global Cities, hosted annually by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the Financial Times, raises provocative questions about the influence of global cities and how they can solve pressing global challenges. Participating thought leaders and decisions makers make new connections and develop innovative solutions to advance in their own cities.
The inaugural Chicago Forum on Global Cities, hosted by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the Financial Times, convened in Chicago May 27-29, 2015. Each year, the forum brings together global leaders in business, education, civics, and the arts for an integrated, cross-sector dialogue on the power and limitations of global cities to shape the world’s future. The role of global cities in our world will be defined by the mayors and maestros, the scholars and CEOs, who attend and participate in this unique annual global forum in a unique global city.
