Realising Just Cities conference week

- Mistra Urban Futures delegation only

13-18 October, Sheffield, UK

Welcome to the conference week in connection to our 4th Annual Conference Realising Just Cities - Lessons, Impacts and Outcomes

The 4th Annual Realising Just Cities Conference focuses on lessons, impacts and outcomes since the start of Mistra Urban Futures in 2010 but with particular emphasis on the current 2016-19 phase of closer international collaborative and comparative research now ending.  

The Centre has sought to co-produce knowledge and action to support sustainable urban development across cities in the Global North and South, working through Local Interaction Platforms and other forms of partnership that bring together researchers from different stakeholders in transdisciplinary teams. 

Our 2019 conference was held in Sheffield, hosted by the Sheffield-Manchester Local Interaction Platform and included representatives from partner cities in Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Gothenburg, Kisumu, Malmö, Shimla, and Stockholm.

This page is only intended for Mistra Urban Futures delegates already associated with our city teams and who have been invited. Not a Mistra Urban Futures delegate. Head over to our Open Conference page, where you can find more information about how you can participate.
