The second and third decades of the 21st Century will see unprecedented growth in cities, as the world will transform from 50% urban today to 70% urban in just over a single generation. Arguably the greatest challenge facing humanity, a collaborative, sustainable approach is needed to address this rapid urbanization.
The World Urban Campaign provides the necessary platform for such collaboration. Coordinated by UN-Habitat, but owned and driven by a long list of committed partners, the Campaign is your opportunity to become part of the urban solution.
Working together, urban communities – those living and working in towns and cities, and those who have an impact on development – can set precedents, develop tools, and offer policy options to achieve resilient and sustainable urban communities by engaging partners in a global movement of public, private, and social sectors worldwide.
