Our Mission:

What is the World Urban Campaign?

The World Urban Campaign is a coalition of urban stakeholders to raise awareness about positive urban change in order to achieve sustainable cities and communities. The WUC was established in 2009 to elevate the urban agenda combining two existing UN-Habitat campaigns on good urban governance and secure tenure. It was launched in 2010 at the 5th World Urban Forum in Rio de Janeiro as an alliance of 20 organizations to promote a new urban paradigm towards better cities, better life. The WUC is coordinated by UN-Habitat and currently comprises more than 200 partner organizations.

 

Our organization:

The World Urban Campaign partners convene and take decisions in a Steering Committee and are led by (co)chairs. The World Urban Campaign is as coalition of partners independent from UN-Habitat, while the secretariat which facilitates and supports the WUC is par t of UN-Habitat. Through this model the World Urban Campaign can act as advisor to the Executive Director (ED) of UN-Habitat.

Our strategic actions:

Advocate and raise -awareness on the role of cities and communities in achieving the SDGs and delivering positive change.Identify solutions to catalyze action between stakeholders in cities and communities.Promote actions that have the best potential to scale -up and accelerate the achievement of the SDGs. Mobilize partners to implement the NUA and accelerate the achievement of the SDGs through specific alliances and joint actions. Measure the results of joint actions and identify concrete achievements towards the SDGs.

Our coalition:

We represent a variety of stakeholders engaged in cities and communities. We thrive to represent all voices through our constituent groups: local and subnational authorities; research and academia; civil society organizations; grass roots organizations; women; parliamentarians; children and youth; business and industries; foundations and philanthropies; professionals; trade unions and workers; farmers; indigenous people; media; older persons. This variety enables dialogue and cooperation between the par tners in the World Urban Campaign and a comprehensive joint outreach on urban issues.
