Humane Cities

Bangalore, India / Virtual:   Dayananda Sagar Institutions

The starting point for the Sustainable Architecture(s) - Humane Cities conference is a (re)consideration of architecture and urbanism in the light of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the current tragic Covid-19 situation.

With over 80% of the world’s megacities projected to be in the Global South by 2030 it addresses the challenges faced by Indian cities and, more broadly, the region’s expanding urban areas: public health, informal development, grass roots activism, climate change and resilience. It examines healthy city strategies and sustainability from practical, cultural, emergency perspectives.

In the middle of a global health crisis, the themes of this conference take on special importance and urgency. Hoping to highlight ways forward after the immediate concerns of 2021 are dealt with, we seek to bring together people concerned with healthy, equitable living in our cities.
