Abstract

Between 7 and 9 June 2017, the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment of the TU Delft organised an Urban Thinkers’ Campus (UTC) on Higher Education for the New Urban Agenda (NUA), titled “EDUCATION FOR THE CITY WE NEED”. As we know, the NUA will guide the efforts of a wide range of actors around urbanisation — nation states, city and regional leaders, international development funders and civil society — for the next 20 years. After the enactment of the document, attention has shifted towards IMPLEMENTATION: how to implement its principles?
We believe that universities have a special role in preparing young professional and critical citizens to face the challenge of making our cities sustainable, prosperous, fair and inclusive. But in order to do so, we reached out to stakeholders from the academic and educational worlds, as well as NGOs, companies and governments to discuss how best to teach and learn issues related to and stemming from the New Urban Agenda.
