CALL  FOR PAPERS: UIA Community Architecture and Human Rights_CA+HR 
By 2030, two thirds of the world's population will live in cities. Projections show that there will be 41 mega cities with more than 10 million inhabitants. Tokyo will remain the world's largest city with 37 million inhabitants followed by Delhi with a population of 36 million. Community Architecture & Human Rights is a key driver in working towards sustainable environments and sustainable city spatial planning. 

How can architecture play a role in influencing policy to guide sustainable urbanisation, while ensuring the human dignity of the communities it serves and bringing in effect spatial justice? 

The UIA CA+HR work program is announcing a "Call to papers!" for any individuals or organisations that wish to contribute to the conversation. CA+HR will be represented in Baku to address this question, and host two conferences in Johannesburg and Hong Kong later this year, with dedicated events leading up to the RIO 2020 UIA world congress, following which a report will be produced on the work that has been done for the duration of the program.

We welcome contributions from researchers, students and practitioners dealing with these issues in the field.

ABOUT THE EVENTS /

What we do

 

The UIA Community Architecture Programme is dedicated to advancing the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with a particular emphasis on Goal 11: Making cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. With current estimations stating that by 2030, two thirds of the world’s population will live in cities, it is essential that urban environments develop in harmony with the UN guiding principles. This Work Programme aims to ensure that Architects are mindful of the Sustainable Development Goals in all the projects that they undertake. 

 

How we do it

 

Information sharing – The Programme implements conferences, discussions and written output about the architect’s role in the UN Sustainable Development Agenda.

 

Expert counsel – The Programme is continually collating policy directives and best practice examples for consultation by the architectural community and distribution to legislative bodies. 

 

Raising awareness – The Programme organises visits and events in developing communities.

 

Who we work with

 

Architects, urban planners, policy makers, and sustainable development organisations.
