UIA participes in the "Urban Thinkers" Campus

Architect Ishtiaque Zahir from Bangladesh represented the UIA, a partner in the United Nations world urban campaign (WUC), at the Urban Thinkers Campus held in Caserta (Italy) on 15 - 18 October 2014. Mr. Zahir also participated in the WUC’s steering committee meeting on the preparation of  HABITAT III world conference that will take place in 2016.


Using the results of deliberations at the sixth and seventh editions of the World Urban Forums (WUF), organised by UN-Habitat in Naples, Italy, in 2012, and in Medellin, Colombia, in April 2014, the campus sought to bring together urban thinkers and stakeholders to discuss ‘The cities we need’, a theme initiated by the World Urban Campaign. The campus included philosophers, writers, journalists, bloggers, urban planners, designers and all those interested urban development, technology, trends and the urban dynamic.
