27-29 May: ECOSOC Integration Segment - Sustainable Urbanization
By 2050, about 70 per cent of the world’s population is expected to live in urban areas, and over 60 per cent of the land projected to become urban by 2030 is yet to be built.

“Sustainable urbanization” will be the focus of the Integration Segment of the Economic and Social Council. The primary objective will be to provide a multi-stakeholder platform to show how urbanization can be an effective tool for the integration of economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development.

All non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in consultative status with ECOSOCare invited to attend. The event will take place 27-29 May from 10am to 6pm in the ECOSOC Chamber at United Nations Headquarters.

Please complete the registration form by 14 May.
