Urban Thinkers Campus Workshop


When: 15 June 18, 8:30am -- 4pm

Where: At James Cook University
Room GMT Training s, Level 3, Building 500 - Clinical Practice Building, Townsville Campus

The Urban Thinkers Campus (UTC) model is an initiative of UN-Habitat’s World Urban Campaign, conceived as an open space for critical exchange between all stakeholders and partners involved in promoting sustainable urbanisation.

On Friday, 15th June JCU will host a UTC entitled Urban livability in tropical Australia through urban diaries and community engagement, which will focus on the relationships between urban planning and design, and public health towards the implementation of the New Urban Agenda locally.

The UTC will be a day-long workshop based upon discussions and the development of action plans for Townsville with the input and active participation of multiple stakeholders, including government, professionals, academics and community in general. The event will count on the participation of Mr Charles R. Wolfe through an awarded Fulbright Specialist Program grant by the United States government.

These UTCs will use urban diaries as tools, consistent with the New Urban Agenda's call to action and implementation of equitable framework. Results of the event will be presented to the Townsville City Council and a final report will be produced for the United Nations addressing prospective policy, planning and regulatory response.
