Workshop on SDG-oriented reform of planning education in Sub-Sahara Africa

July 20, 2017

The aim of the workshop is to discuss how urban-oriented teaching and research at academic institutions in Sub-Sahara Africa and Germany could become more effective in preparing urban professionals for the dramatic sustainability challenges we face and which have been defined in the Agenda 2030/ SDGs, the New Urban Agenda or the Paris Outcomes of 2015.

The workshop builds on previous discussions held in Quito in October 2016 and in Johannesburg in November 2016, which provided opportunities for educators andpractitioners working in different geographical regions to reflect on how education and training of urban professionals should use the momentum created by the SDGs. Participants will be discussing how could urban professionals be trained to become more affective agents and advocators in transformation-to-sustainability processes in urban settings.
