IFHP now official lead partner with the 'World Urban Campaign'

Even though IFHP and the World Urban Campaign have been working together for a number of months now, we are happy to announce that IFHP now has a Lead Partnership status with WUC after recently signing an official Memorandum of Understanding.
The World Urban Campaign (WUC) is an advocacy and partnership platform to raise awareness about positive urban change in order to achieve green, productive, safe, healthy, inclusive, and well planned cities. Its goal is to place the Urban Agenda at the highest level in development policies. It is coordinated by UN-Habitat and driven by a large number of committed partners - currently 136 partners and networks - from around the world. 
 

IFHP's Involvement

Ever since the start of the WUC, IFHP has been actively involved: 

- IFHP has joined (Read more about our engagement with UN habitat here).

- IFHP is putting forward thinking via Urban Solutions

- IFHP is sharing on a regular basis through activities, news and the WUC newsletter

- IFHP is acting as an Implementation Agent

 

Our latest contribution to the WUC: Urban Thinkers Campus in Belfast 

We are also excited to be delivering the Urban Thinkers Campus (UTC) in Belfast and Dublin with our partners as part of the World Urban Campaign. The objective of the UTC is to assist the implementation stage of the New Urban Agenda (2016) by focusing on several principles of the World Urban Campaign's "The City We Need", namely how to make cities more (1) socially inclusive and engaging (2) affordable, equitable and inclusive (3) economically vibrant and inclusive and (4) safe, healthy and promoting well-being.
 
In this event we will be bringing together international experts and “thinkers” from UK and Ireland as well as from elsewhere in Europe and beyond to debate and discuss the issues and propose solutions. We are including politicians, NGOs, the voluntary sector, the private sector, academics, community workers and practitioners in housing, planning, built environment, education and economic development to agree actions that will assist in making cities more cohesive, inclusive and fair to everyone.
