Sustainable Cities & Communities: Educating for SDGs 9 & 11

 SDGs 9 and 11

WHEN: February 2nd 2021. 4.00pm-5.30pm

WHERE: Online - register via Eventbrite.

How do we make our cities sustainable and able to support vibrant local communities? Come and hear the thoughts of award-winning author, Dr Husam Al Waer, Reader in Sustainable Urban Design at the University of Dundee. Husam is an urbanist and architecture expert on making spaces better for people.

We hear about ’20 minute neighbourhoods’ - but what would these look like in practice? And how can we equip children and young people with the skills needed to design living spaces which will meet people’s rights to shelter, food, decent work and a clean environment?

We will take a look at the often neglected SDGs 9 & 11 and offer some ideas, activities and resources for the classroom to support making our cities more sustainable by 2030.
