World Urban Forum

World Urban Forum in Kuala Lumpur (7-13 Feb 2018)



Two of our colleagues – Rob Cowley and Jon Phillips – are coorganising a side event at the ninth World Urban Forum in Kuala Lumpur next month.  This interactive session will explore the question ‘What Can Urban Sustainability Experiments Do?’, and will begin with short presentations on varied ‘experimental’ urban activities in China, South Africa and the UK.  It’s booked for 11:00-12:00 on Tuesday 13 Feb 2018, in Room 304.  If you are attending the Forum, please come along!

WUF9 (the ninth World Urban Forum) will focus on the implementation of the New Urban Agenda adopted in October 2016 at Habitat III (the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development) in Quito, Ecuador.   The New Urban Agenda document sets out a common vision and global standards for urban development in the coming decades. You can find out more about WUF9 and the New Urban Agenda on the Forum website.
