Mistra Urban Futures Annual International Conference 2017

November 13 @ 8:00 am - November 15 @ 5:00 pm

Realising Just Cities

Mistra Urban Futures Annual International Conference takes place from 13 to 15 November 2017 in Kisumu, Kenya under the banner “Realising Just Cities – Learning Through Comparison”.

The rapidly growing number of people moving into cities all over the world also present a challenge of unprecedented size. It is crucial to find ways to make urbanisation a source for wealth, health and sustainability – which is shared. Mistra Urban Futures arranges yearly a conference about Realising Just Cities.

Keynote speakers include:

Caroline Wanjiku Kihato, Visiting Researcher at the School of Architecture and Planning at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, and a Global Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars, Washington DC. Member of Mistra Urban Futures Board.
