8. Description of the Campus: 
This UTC gathers stakeholders from the academic and educational worlds, as well as NGOs, companies and government agencies, to discuss how best to TEACH and LEARN issues related to and stemming from the New Urban Agenda. The main question is: How to prepare young professionals to understand and implement the New Urban Agenda in very diverse national and local environments?
Our UTC will discuss strategies, methodologies, literature and practical exercises that can be implemented in higher education courses. This will happen through a series of talks and practical workshops. It will also be a moment to meet like-minded people, engage in debate and form new partnerships.
