The Swiss government invited Wu and will fund the trip. The theme of the week-long journey is “Shaping Urban Landscapes for a Sustainable Future.”

Wu says she will join eight female U.S. mayors to discuss public health and safety issues, women in politics, urban governance, economic promotion, and the future of cities.

Wu will be in Switzerland from April 20-27.
