Driving Urban Transition towards Sustainable and Just Futures in Africa – A Workshop Series

Addressing urban issues is crucial for solving grand societal and planetary challenges in the contemporary world. While goals and strategies, such as Agenda 2030 and its Sustainable Development Goals are global ambitions, enhancing sustainability and livability on a local urban scale is key. This workshop series aims at developing visions on just, sustainable and livable urban areas in Africa, discussing the pathways to make those visions a reality and how international cooperation can support local urban transitions.
