Forty cities meet at the World Cities Summit every two years to discuss topics ranging from urban development to sustainable living. This year, as heads of their respective cities, delegates are tasked with addressing the many facets of urban infrastructure and the rise of megacities on the international stage. As representatives of some of the most influential locales in the world, their actions will determine whether existing global hubs crumble under the pressures of urbanization or flourish and adapt to become enduring centers of civilization.
The rise of globalization has affected the makeup and structure of cities as human dwellings in a profound way, and it is up to delegates to tackle these challenges and many others as representatives of the World Cities Summit.
The World Cities Summit is an intermediate committee. Delegates with some experience in MUN are preferred, although anybody with ability and interest may be chosen for this committee.
Please submit all position papers and inquiries relating to World Cities Summit to [email protected].
