NEW ORLEANS — Mayor LaToya Cantrell today will travel to Amsterdam, The Netherlands to attend the Bloomberg CityLab Conference and Mayors Innovation Studio taking place Oct. 9 – 11, 2022.
“It is an honor and a privilege to be invited to join my brother and sister mayors from around the world, as well as other prominent city innovators, business leaders, urban experts and activists to explore the shared hurdles and possibilities faced by cities and around the world and create better solutions and opportunities for our people and communities to thrive,” said Mayor Cantrell. “From leading our communities through pandemic recovery to welcoming refugees from global conflicts to being on the frontlines of climate change as a coastal city, attending this year’s Bloomberg CityLab is directly aligned with my administration’s goal to create a more inclusive, equitable, resilient and welcoming city. We are a world-class city, and I will continue to embrace any opportunity to place New Orleans front and center on the global issues that greatly impact our people the most.”
The Bloomberg CityLab and Mayors Innovation Studio will include panel discussions, one-on-one interviews, interactive breakout sessions, artistic performances and excursions to unique cultural destinations across Amsterdam. Other mayors in attendance will include Mayor London Breed of San Francisco, Mayor Kostas Bakoyannis of Athens, Greece and Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo of Mexico City, Mexico.
