1 - 7 SEPTEMBER 2012

Naples and Campania have been chosen by the United Nations to host a world event to be held in September 2012: World Urban Forum 6.

In the space of a few short years, the World Urban Forum has turned into the world's premier conference on cities. The Forum was established by the United Nations to examine one of the most pressing problems facing the world today: rapid urbanization and its impact on communities, cities, economies, climate change and policies.

The main theme will be cities welfare. With half of humanity already living in towns and cities, it is projected that in the next 50 years, two-thirds of us will be living in towns and cities. A major challenge is to minimize burgeoning poverty in cities, improve access of the urban poor to basic facilities such as shelter, clean water and sanitation and to achieve environmentally friendly, sustainable urban growth and development.

The WUF will be hosted at Mostra d’Oltremare in Naples, a key opportunity for the city. On its 6 th edition, more than 150 delegations are expected to attend as well as 10 000 visitors.
