  • Just Cities – The Right to the City in an Unequal World

    Urban Library
    Venue: Urban Library

    Partner Organization:

    Panel discussion and book launch focusing on how urbanization policies can tackle and address inequality and promote participation. As the rate of urbanization worldwide grows, this process is not always accompanied by social measures that reduce inequality, and urban development policies are not always created within a multi-stake holder approach. In addition, policy measures need to address ecological sustainability within city planning. This panel and book launch will bring together representatives from politics and civil society to share experiences and discuss the current situation of inequality and social democracy, and their ideas and visions for shaping just and sustainable cities.
