2019 Global Walking Tour: 50 Forward | 50 Back

Join the CTBUH Urban Habitat / Urban Design Committee for the 2019 Global Walking Tour. The Global Walking Tours have been held since 2014 to explore, first-hand, the aspects of urban habitat that make cities great. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Council and the 10th World Congress, this year’s tours will follow the 50 Forward | 50 Back  theme, reflecting on the recent history and looking to the sustainable future of cities around the world. On 27 June, you can join a tour happening in your city, or follow along on Twitter or Instagram using #CTBUHWalks.
