Event description

Description

On 11 September 2019, Sound Development returns to London in partnership with UN Habitat for a special edition of their Urban Thinkers Campus.

Sound Diplomacy is part of the UN Habitat's Urban Thinkers Campus, a network that organises events in order to promote, support and further develop strategies towards meeting the UN's sustainable development goals (SDGs). As a result, we're thrilled to partner with the United Nations to present the eight edition of Sound Development, an exploration into music, real estate and sustainability.

THEME:

"Inclusive Growth: Using Music & Culture to Enhance Resilience in Cities".
Can we create leisure led developments where the music & culture that drives it is done sustainably, and supports the SDGs? Can we ensure gender parity? Fair pay? Zero-waste? To discuss, we'll amass a terrific panel and two presentations, with speakers so far confirmed from the UN, Arup, Oxford Policy Management and others.

ABOUT UN-HABITAT & URBAN THINKERS CAMPUS:

UN-Habitat is the United Nations programme working towards a better urban future. Its mission is to promote socially and environmentally sustainable human settlements development and the achievement of adequate shelter for all.

The Urban Thinkers Campus model is an initiative of UN-Habitat’s World Urban Campaign conceived as an open space for critical exchange between urban researchers, professionals, and decision-makers who believe that urbanization is an opportunity and can lead to positive urban transformations.

TICKETS:

All tickets are available on a donation basis and all ticket revenue will be donated to charity. Our charity partner will be FWRD, which is the first and only registered charity in the UK dedicated to helping the most vulnerable in society through the collection and redistribution of abandoned items at festivals.
