Architecture, Cities and Territories

What we do

Working in collaboration with the UNESCO-CIMES Chair and other international organizations (UN-HABITAT, UCLG and others), the Architecture, Cities and Territories Work Programme endeavors to strengthen the strategic relationship between urban planners and architects, with a special focus on intermediate cities.

How we do it

  • Base Plan – The Programme aims to reinforce architects’ technical capacities in the fields of urbanism, town planning and management through the UNESCO Base Plan methodology and learning platform.
  • Workshops – The Programme offers workshops for architects and other urban planning professionals, as well as professors and architecture students in their final year of study.
  • Training Courses – The Programme runs teacher-training courses for professionals interested in becoming trainers in architecture and urbanism. These courses are open to architects and representatives of local governments. All participants will receive a certificate of “Base Plan methodology trainer” on completing the course.

Who we work with

Local Architects and other urban planning professionals involved in urban transformation processes and keen to promote more inclusive and sustainable urban development.
