The United Nations Uraía Platform selected the City of Chicago and its partner City Tech Collaborative to host the first ever City Solutions Series. The global conference on 11th - 12th July 2018, will bring Chicago’s city solutions to international visibility and provide a classroom for other local governments with similar projects, issues, and challenges.

The Chicago City Solutions Series will host 80 - 100 attendees at a two-day workshop that will feature plenaries, panels, site visits, and discussions centered on four priority areas and showcase exemplary Chicago-based urban innovations and selected examples from participating cities.

  1. Infrastructure management. For instance, projects leveraging innovations like open data or predictive analytics to improve service delivery, water, management, and waste management.
  2. Mobility & Transportation. For instance, projects seeking to reduce congestion, manage transportation demand shifts, or deploy new or alternative transportation modes/technologies like electric vehicles or automated vehicles.
  3. Emergency preparedness. For instance, projects offering new approaches to address fires, flooding, terrorism, or extreme heat.
  4. Public health. For instance, projects leveraging data or technology to address air quality, water quality, or city health inspections.
