Urban Thinkers Campus

Urban Thinkers Campus. November 13 -14, 2019 at Columbia University

This Urban Thinkers Campus (UTC) at Columbia University addressed the urgency of meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and how academia, the professions and civil society can help expedite action on the SDGs. How can we accelerate the SDGs along with other sustainability agendas? Academic, professional, and civil society participants contributed to this dialogue, sharing experience, knowledge and critical viewpoints. The UTC complimented the ongoing project, Accelerating the SDGs.
