We are launching our global campaign at Habitat III in Quito!
We are very happy to announce that City Space Architecture in partnership with the Queensland University of Technology (Australia), The Chinese University of Hong Kong, the University of Auckland (New Zealand) and LASE + CityUrb (Ecuador), will official launch the campaign ‘Stand up for Public Space!’ at Habitat III conference in Quito, Ecuador, during a networking event that will take place on October 17, 2.00pm-4.00pm at Casa de la Cultura Ecuatoriana.
Habitat III is the United Nations conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development.
As reported by Dr. Joan Clos, the Secretary General of the conference, Habitat III “is a unique opportunity for rethinking the Urban Agenda in which governments can respond by promoting a new model of urban development able to integrate all facets of sustainable development to promote equity, welfare and shared prosperity”.
After Habitat I in Vancouver in 1976, Habitat II in Istanbul in 1996, in Quito world leaders will again meet to review the global urban agenda as well as the mandate, structure and further strengthening of UN-Habitat as it enters its fifth decade.
