On June 8, leaders from the largest advanced economies will gather for the annual G-7 summit to discuss the most pressing challenges the world faces.This is a mistake; if the world's biggest problems are to be solved, cities must become part of the conversation.Historically, cities have played a marginal role in global debates. This week, leaders from Montreal and 10,000 other cities around the world will deliver a similar message to the G-7 . To be sure, today's cities face many challenges.Inspired by this solidarity, and connected through international networks like Metropolis, C-40 Cities, and 100 Resilient Cities, municipal leaders everywhere are forging partnerships to create united urban agendas.This is an opportune time for city leaders to become global players.
