Realising Just Cities – Comparative Co-production
The rapidly growing number of people moving into cities all over the world presents 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 Annual Conferences about Realising Just Cities, which are hosted at our research platforms.
The 2018 conference will take place in Cape Town, South Africa and focus on comparative co-production and how we jointly can address global urban challenges. The conference intends to share and reflect on a selection of the comparative projects that have been co-produced in Mistra Urban Futures’ second phase: Cultural Heritage and Just Cities; Knowledge Transfer through embedded research; Migration and Urban Development; Participatory Cities; Solid Waste Management; Sustainable Development Goals; Transportation and Urban Development; Urban Food Value Chain and Urban Public Finance.
The internal workshops, only available for invited participants involved in Mistra Urban Futures' comparative projects, will be held on 5th November 2018.
The conference days are the 6th (all day) and 7th November 2018 (until 14.30). The programme will be shared in September.
Closed sessions 7th November afternoon starting at 15.30.
