      World Urban Forum in June in Vancouver, B.C., Canada

      This coming June, thousands of participants from around the world will
      meet in Vancouver to examine and identify solutions to the challenges of
      urbanization. Join us as we mark the 30th anniversary of the first UN
      conference on human settlements held in Vancouver in 1976, which led to
      the creation of UN-HABITAT.


      More than 50 international exhibitors will be present from June 19-23 to
      showcase their latest research and development studies, best practices and
      technologies related to the sustainability of cities. Exciting country
      pavilions from Canada, Spain, China, Sweden, The Netherlands, Japan and
      many others will add to the international flavour of the World Urban Forum
      3. Universities, non-governmental organizations, environmental groups and
      even an international bazaar will help make the WUF3 exhibition a place to
      meet, learn, and have fun.
