Call to host Urban Thinkers Campus 2017

By on November 16, 2016

Call open from 15 November 2016

The Urban Thinkers Campus is an initiative of UN-Habitat conceived as an open space for critical exchange between urban researchers, professionals, civil society actors and decision-makers who believe that urbanization is an opportunity and can lead to positive urban transformations. It is also intended as a platform to build consensus between partners engaged in addressing urbanization challenges and proposing solutions to urban futures.

The first Urban Thinkers in Campus (UTC) was organized in October 2014 on the theme The City We Need, in October 2014, in the City of Caserta, Italy. Subsequently, the World Urban Campaign Steering Committee recommended that other Urban Thinkers Campuses be solicited in order to amplify the urban thinkers’ movement towards Habitat III. From 29 June 2015 to 20 February 2016, a series of 26 Urban Thinkers Campuses have been organized around the framework of The City We Need 2.0.

At the 16th session in Quito (16 October 2016), the WUC Steering Committee has recommended that a new series of Urban Thinkers Campuses be organized in order to continue engaging stakeholders in the post-Habitat III era. WUC Partners have endorsed a new generation of Urban Thinkers Campuses to be used as platforms for action bringing together all partners to implement the New Urban Agenda towards The City We Need.

World Urban Campaign (WUC) Lead or Associate partners can apply by filling the proposal application form 2017 & submitting it to urbanthinkers@unhabitat.org

Deadline for applications:
31 December 2016
