Community Architecture and Human Rights

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.
