Realising Just Cities - Learning Through Comparison
Mistra Urban Futures Annual International Conference - 13-15 November 2017 - Kisumu, Kenya
The rapidly growing number of people moving into cities all over the world also present a challenge of unprecedented size. It is crucial to find ways to make urbanisation a source for wealth, health and sustainability – which is shared. Mistra Urban Futures arranges yearly a conference about Realising Just Cities.
This year’s conference focuses on learning through comparison.
