Between 7 and 9 June 2017, the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment of the TU Delft will organise an Urban Thinkers’ Campus (UTC ) on Higher Education for the New Urban Agenda

The New Urban Agenda is the outcome document agreed upon at the Habitat III cities conference in Quito, Ecuador, in October 2016 and signed by all the UN member states.

The NUA will guide the efforts  of a wide range of actors around urbanisation — nation states, city and regional leaders, international development funders and civil society — for the next 20 years.

After the enactment of the document, attention has shifted towards IMPLEMENTATION: how to implement its principles?  

We believe that universities have a special role in preparing young professional to face the challenge of making our cities sustainable, prosperous, fair and inclusive. But in order to do so,  we are reaching out to stakeholders from the academic and educational worlds, as well as NGOscompanies and government agencies, to discuss how best to teach and learn issues related to and stemming from the New Urban Agenda. 

The TU Delft UTC will discuss strategies, methodologies, literature and practical exercises that can be implemented in higher education courses in Europe and elsewhere. Our attention is on social, economic and environmentally sustainable urban development everywhere, but the challenges of urbanisation in the Global South are truly urgent.
