Urban Shalom Forums

These events are an opportunity to help Christians engage with urban challenges and opportunities and integral urban missions outlined in the Gospel and the Future of Cities: A Call to Action statement.  These are city-wide forums, and or international consultations, that provide stimulus for thought and action from thinkers, activists and leaders all working in a city context.

In 2017 we hosted forums with partners in Melbourne, Sydney, Cha’am (Thailand), Detroit, Cincinnati, Singapore and Birmingham with future forums planned for the following cities:
