Urban Thinkers Campus 2020: The New Urban Normal


About the Urban Thinkers Campus 

We are excited to announce that the Global Urban Lab has been invited to host the second Urban Thinkers Campus (UTC) of 2020, titled 'The New Urban Normal: Urban Sustanability and Resilience Post COVID19', discussing the COVID19 pandemic. The UTC is part of UNHabitat's World Urban Campaign, providing open spaces for exchanges between stakeholders to promote sustainable urbanisation, as well as advocateing enlightened planning and design. This year, the UTC has become entirely digital. 


Three-part event

The UTC is organised in three sessions during June and July 2020. While two sessions focus on what has been happening on the ground in the Global South (Sessions 1 and 3), showing how the pandemic has exposed several  structural deficiencies around the world, the second even focused on future actions and opportunities for positive change. 


You can watch the recordings of all three events:

17.06 - Perspectives from the Global South

24.06 - The Green New Deal

13.07 - Housing in Africa
