Inclusive Cities – The New Urban Agenda: Lessons from the Habitat III Conference
Interested in inclusive cities and sustainable urban development? Miss the United Nations Habitat III Conference that took place in Quito in October? Enjoy live music? You can access the best of all this and more at Dudoc Vancouver on December 14, 2016, for a special panel presentation and reception. Co-hosted by the Netherlands Consulate in Vancouver, the evening will feature a speaker panel and audience discussion about the goals and impact of the New Urban Agenda that was established in Quito, and what it means for our communities.
Rhythm and Cello will provide the musical entertainment during the reception for this event, which includes drinks and light snacks, and the opportunity to network with local and international attendees who share a passion for building better urban communities. Prepare for some Latin, rolk and folk music to set the mood for a wonderful evening.
