A tomorrow for cities - for people, by people
8-11 June 2013
Cities are constantly changing, forever in transition from one state to the next. Tomorrow's cities need to be resilient to environmental risks and able to withstand economic shocks. They must be inclusive in terms of how they are governed and planned; becoming places in which social justice shapes the physical and economic fabric.
The aim is that the knowledge gained from the congress will contribute to a better Tomorrow for Cities.
The congress will take place over 4 days between the 8th and 11th June 2013.
The main venue for the congress will be University College, London, home of the world renowned Bartlett School of Planning, located in London’s Bloomsbury, a short walk from St Pancras International train station. Venues in East London and across the capital will also be used for related events.
The congress will attract up to 800 delegates from across the globe. Around 50% of this international audience is expected to be from the UK. The IFHP centenary congress will include a range of activities, study tours and interventions to attract delegates from across the built environment profession – practitioners, policy makers, academics and students. The congress will provide a springboard for the future of the IFHP and contribute to the programmes the IFHP will tackle in the coming century.
