The next Urban Age conference will take place in Addis Ababa

1 May 2018

The Urban Age “Developing Urban Futures” conference will take place in Addis Ababa on 29–30 November 2018. Jointly organised by LSE Cities at the London School of Economics and the Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft, the conference will focus on the development of cities in rapidly urbanising countries. By convening urban experts, policymakers and practitioners from Sub-Saharan Africa and other world cities, the conference will raise questions about the economic foundations of urban change and investigate how current models of planning and governance succeed or fail to achieve greater integration between efficiency, accessibility and social justice. This will be the seventeenth Urban Age conference organised since 2005, most recently in Delhi, the Venice Biennale, Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro and London.
