Every year, Bloomberg Philanthropies hosts CityLab, the preeminent meeting of city leaders and the top minds in urbanism and city planning, economics, education, art, architecture, public- sector innovation, community development, and business. Its goal: is to find solutions to the most pressing challenges facing cities around the world. The 2021 CityLab was held virtually with host cities Bogotá, Freetown, Helsinki, and San Francisco. Past CityLabs have been hosted in New York, Los Angeles, London, Miami, Paris, and Detroit.
