Training Events are led by different partners/institutions, well-known for their educational, training and research works. Each Training Event will focus on a particular theme and are practical, problem-solving oriented and intensive in nature. They provide an essential "how to" approach to development challenges with the latest innovative tools, methodologies, instruments and package of knowledge to support implementation.

The Training Events relate to the main theme of the WUF as outlined in the concept paper and distilled into the 6 sub-themes. They provide some responses to the problem of increasing inequalities in cities and develop skills and knowledge of the participants to enable them to address the challenges of bringing together policies, programmes, projects and strategies that tackle different dimensions of urban inequality.

Signing up is free of charge; please note that maximum capacity is 56 participants on a first-come, first-serve basis. You can see the full list of Training Events here
