Developing Urban Futures Urban Age Conference

Register your interest in attending

The next Urban Age conference will take place in Addis Ababa on 29–30 November 2018. Jointly organised by LSE Cities 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.
