COMING SOON: A NEW CALL FOR URBAN SOLUTIONS!

COMING SOON: A NEW CALL FOR URBAN SOLUTIONS!

28 September 2017
Today, the World Urban Campaign is announcing a new call for Urban Solutions to open on Monday 2 October during the celebrations of the World Habitat Day. Submissions for urban solutions will be opened up to 31 December 2017 through an online submission portal.
 

In 2016, the World Urban Campaign received over 172 urban solutions that aimed to inform the New Urban Agenda, the outcome document of the Habitat III Conference, which was adopted in October of 2016.
 
With this new round of solutions, the WUC is also calling partners to action, by submitting ideas on how the New Urban Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals can be implemented in order to achieve The City We Need. The WUC envisages Urban Solutions to be initiatives, practices, policies, legislations and models that address urban challenges and constitute effective responses to The City We Need. These solutions illustrate how the drivers of change can be implemented, either locally or in multiple contexts. The most effective solutions are locally focused, empower all and integrate sectors, actors and processes.
 
The online submission form will ask contributors to relate their ideas to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), The City We Need Principles and its Drivers of Change. It also provides space to detail the projected impacts of the proposed solutions and offer details such as engagement strategy and potential challenges to implementation.
