Description

How do we make our cities liveable and promote healthy urban communities?

World leaders have committed to adopt the New Urban Agenda and set a new global standard for sustainable urban development. This United Nations initiative includes 17 sustainable development goals. Some of the commitments leaders have agreed to include promoting "measures that support cleaner cities"; promoting "safe, accessible and green spaces"; and strengthening "resilience in cities to reduce the risk and the impact of disasters".

This conference aims to focus on key areas addressing how we plan, manage and live in our cities and regional centres.

Topics include:

  • The New Urban Agenda
  • Commitment to health
  • Community participation and social development
  • The liveable neighbourhood
  • Responsible resource management
  • Bringing nature back
  • Showcasing regional liveable cities and centres
  • Heritage infrastructure and liveable cities

This conference will be preceded by the one day Safe Cities Conference taking place on Monday 12 June 2017.
