AESOP'S Position Paper on the NEW URBAN AGENDA

Published at: 10 October 2016

AESOP has recently applied to become an accredited partner of UN HABITAT and it already became one of the members of the General Assembly of Partners (GAP), a special initiative proposed by the World Urban Campaign (WUC) to serve as a platform for non-governmental partners in Habitat III.

The Habitat III Conference aims to adopt a New Urban Agenda (NUA)—an action-oriented document which will set global standards of achievement in sustainable urban development, rethinking the way we build, manage, and live in cities through cooperation with committed partners, relevant stakeholders, and urban actors at all levels of government as well as the private sector.

AESOP has been contributing to the debates on the New Urban Agenda and, as a result, prepared this Position Paper which focuses on the role that research and academia and, in particular, our planning schools should play in the implementation phase of the NUA, through capacity building, knowledge production, and research that informs policymaking, as  well as data collection and analysis for the subsquent monitoring phases.


The ExCo would like to thank our colleague  Prof. Ela Babalik Sutcliffe  for leading the preparation of this document.

AESOP-IFHP LECTURE SERIES

Published at: 26 December 2011

From Cities of To-morrow to a Tomorrow for Cities
The Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP) and the International Federation for Housing and Planning (IFHP) have launched a joint activity within the framework of the Decade of Planning: a series of lectures in 2012-2013 by well-known planners and other ‘urban thinkers’, both academics and practitioners. The idea is to attract not only the planning community but also a wider audience of politicians, community leaders and organizations, business and the media to promote planning as a discipline that can contribute to the quality of life, help find new tools of governance of the urban structures and function as an effective mediator between the many stakeholders.
