It is estimated that as many as 60% of all urban dwellers will be under the age of 18 by 2030, with a significant percentage of this growth being the result of youth migrating to urban areas. As international migration continues to grow in scale and complexity, the event will explore the role of the city stakeholders – from local government, civil society to businesses – in promoting the inclusion of vulnerable groups such as migrant children, youth and their families. This includes improving rights and protection, and providing equitable and dignified access to services and economic opportunities.
This session focused on:
- Public Space
- Participatory design
- City regions as economic zones for local livelihoods
