Habitat Professionals Roundtable

Habitat Professionals' Vision Towards a New Urban Agenda

This session will bring together Habitat professionals – architects, planners, surveyors, engineers, landscape architects – committed to sustainable cities.

The roundtable will be led by the Habitat Professional Forum (HPF) affiliates who are independent, non-profit, and non-governmental organisations that are international or regional associations of Habitat professionals supporting sustainable urban development.

Building on the previous WUF roundtables, and on the Rio Habitat Professionals Charter, participants will address a set of new issues to start implementing their vision for the New Urban Agenda, working towards the Habitat III Conference.

The Roundtable will give the HPF members an opportunity to present the vision of each organisation in implementing the Charter towards a New Urban Agenda.

Thursday 10 April 2:00pm - 4:00pm | Grand Salon Room 3
