Making a difference at the 10th World Urban Forum

2020 starts with an exciting range of advocacy activities for us during the upcoming World Urban Forum in Abu Dhabi (8-13th February 2020). Together with a fine selection of international partners we will advocate for positive change & evidence based design, share knowledge and reflect on our experiences to improve health and well-being in urban systems with children and youth in mind. The following list includes an overview of our activities during WUF10. These are all open and free to access. Come and join the conversation.
