Community-centred urban development: A paradigm of inclusive growth
On the occasion of the World Cities Day 2020, UNESCO in the framework of the UNESCO Cities Platform of which Creative Cities Network is a part of, will bring together speakers from academia, public and private sectors, and civil society for an “Urban Dialogue”, to continue the discussion on the integral and essential role of communities in building sustainable and resilient cities.
This celebration will also be an opportunity for UNESCO to showcase the full range of its expertise and activities in the urban context, contributing to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, and notably SDG 11 on sustainable cities and communities. Various flagship publications of the city Networks and Programmes of the Platform will be presented during this event, which will further complement the global theme of the World Cities Day 2020 “Valuing our communities and cities”.
