The Chicago Council on Global Affairs announced today it has received a $5 million multi-year commitment from the Pritzker Foundation to support its annual three-day global cities forum. Launched in 2015, the forum convenes civic, business, cultural and academic leaders from around the world to raise provocative questions about the influence of global cities and how they can solve pressing global challenges. The forum, cohosted with the Financial Times, will be named the Pritzker Forum on Global Cities in honor of the commitment made to the Council’s Second Century Campaign. The 2019 Forum will take place June 5-7, 2019.
