Elevating the urban agenda and dealing with the fastest urbanization rates in history must start by forging the most effective alliances between private, public and social interests, around shared values to address urban core challenges and build solutions. This is the essence of the World Urban Campaign, a catalytic and transformative partnership that is meant to engage the civil society, the business sector, the research community and governments in a global movement that elevates the urban agenda through a positive vision and understanding of the tremendous benefits cities can bring.
Beyond an advocacy partnership, the World Urban Campaign shall provide the knowledge and action-oriented platform to address the complexity of the urban agenda through an integrated and systemic approach of urban issues. It shall harness the right partners to share converging interests and leverage their strengths and core competencies. The partnership shall also have the in-build capacity to reach the required scale to generate impact.
Partners of the World Urban Campaign will present partnership approaches in cities, identify drivers of change, share experiences on how strengths and innovation can be leveraged and shared values be positively harnessed to generate positive change.
This session on “Building Partnerships for Urban Futures: Leveraging Strengths, Driving Change through Shared Values” is organized in partnership with the UN HABITAT. Speakers include high-level representatives from corporations and their partners at the city level.
