At WBEF Dubai 2022, influencers, innovators and investors will draw a new blueprint for liveability, prosperity and wellbeing across the urbanised world. The event will take place at Expo2020; we are proud to be part of the world’s greatest show.

What is liveability? Though often cited by cities as a defining policy goal, definitions differ. This complicates the challenge of effectively investing in, designing, building and operating inclusive and liveable urban spaces.

Cities remain central to global economic growth, but must prove that they have successfully adapted to emerging norms and expectations. Liveability must cease to be a buzzword, and become an indexed and quantifiable reality, objectively defined and emphatically demonstrated. It is a generational challenge.

A global community of senior leaders from the private, public, academic and not-for-profit sectors will convene at WBEF Dubai 2022. Their common aim will be the creation of agile, healthy and resilient places as the urban century unfolds.
