On 19 — 21 September 2023, Strong Cities Network held its Fourth Global Summit in New York City, which brought together over 240 participants, including city leaders and practitioners representing more than 115 cities from 50 countries globally. The Summit featured 11 events and provided city officials from diverse contexts with the opportunity to share and learn from promising practices for city-led prevention of hate, extremism and polarisation.

The programme included a coordination meeting between Strong Cities Network, The Carter Center, United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), the International Republican Institute (IRI) and Peace in Our Cities to explore synergies and potential areas for collaboration. The meeting included representatives from the City of Edmonton (Canada), which participates in a number of city networks, to provide a local government perspective on how these initiatives can better engage cities. This coordination meeting follows one that was held on the margins of the Cities Summit of the Americas in Denver (Colorado, USA) in April 2023, where more than a dozen organisations that work with cities gathered to facilitate more connections and collaboration among them. Discussions there explored several topics, including data, communications, and the role of cities in the multilateral system.
