The New Urban Agenda commits to create and maintain well-connected and well-distributed networks of open, multipurpose, safe, inclusive, accessible, green and quality public spaces to promoting attractive and liveable cities, human settlements and urban landscapes.

In addition, it recognises culture as a priority component of urban plans and strategies, safeguarding a diverse range of tangible and intangible urban heritage and landscape.

Join us for coffee and conversation on how to take action on the New Urban Agenda around the concept of Urban Landscape and its power as real facilitator of the socio-economic function of the city.
