The Purpose and focus

Urban Thinkers Campuses serve as platforms for collaborative thinking, fostering the exchange of ideas and innovative solutions to urban challenges. With a mandate to deliver critical recommendations addressing pertinent urban topics, the UTCs aim to be catalysts for positive change.

Submission Requirements:

Organizations aspiring to host a UTC in the upcoming cycle must have previously organized a UTC and are required to submit reports for their last event to qualify for consideration. This prerequisite ensures a commitment to the ongoing dialogue and implementation of recommendations from past initiatives. (Note: Organizations which are not members of WUC and would like to host an UTC may contact the secretariat for additional information).

Online Application Process:

Applications for hosting an UTC in 2024 should be submitted online through the official application form. The link to the application form is:

Prospective organizers are urged to review the UTC GUIDE, accessible at, before initiating the application process. The guide provides comprehensive insights into the UTC model, preparatory steps, and specific requirements to ensure a successful event.
