The inaugural Chicago Forum on Global Cities, hosted by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the Financial Times, will convene in Chicago June 6—8, 2018.  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.
