We’ve also posted the data from our exhibition and videos of our talks online.

A lot was going on, so here’s a brief summary of our involvement in the Habitat III programme:

  • Co-hosting a three-hour Dialogue on the Habitat III Policy Unit 4 ‘Urban Governance and the New Urban Agenda’ with United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG). LSE Cities also co-led the preparatory process of Policy Unit 4 during 2015 and 2016.
  • Hosting an official Side Event on Conflicts of an Urban Age which looked at whether spatial planning policy can tame urban growth and what the impacts of urban form are, if any, on productivity, the environment and social inclusion.
  • Organising one of three Urban Talks. ‘Designing the Urban Age’ featured Ricky Burdett, Richard Sennett, Saskia Sassen and Joan Clos. Unlike other events, which had several parallel events, Urban Talks were the only events available in their respective time slot.
  • An Exhibition stand of Urban Age and LSE Cities material where, during the course of four days, over 5,000 people engaged with some of the core themes investigated by the Centre.
  • Participation of LSE Cities staff in events co-ordinated by other organisations.
  • Numerous meetings and networking opportunities with all levels of government, NGOs, private sector and leading academic institutions across the globe, and an important opportunity to establish strategic contacts in Africa and those involved with shaping Africa’s urban future.
