Urban Lectures

In April 2014 UN-Habitat launched the Global Urban Lectures – lecture packages focused on subjects related to cities and urbanization.

Each package consists of a 15 min video, a synopsis of the topic, a biography of the speaker and links to in depth study.

The speakers are associated with UN-Habitat’s work, recruited from universities, think-tanks, governments, NGO’s, and private sector institutions. The series wishes to demonstrate a sound evidence-based analysis of a given problem and issues at stake, identify propositions to address them and provide examples that demonstrate how such propositions actually work, are being tested or have been implemented.

All lecture packages are available free of charge, please find them in the tab ‘Our lectures’ below.

You will also find a summary pdf containing all of our current lectures here: Global Urban Lectures – all packages
