As ISOCARP ambassador, Frank D’hondt will highlight take-aways from the New Urban Agenda in a lunch workshop at the Faculty of Architecture, TU Delft, including themes as social, economic and environmental resilience, metropolitan mobility, planning and governance.
He will make the link with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Agenda 2030, earlier approved by all UN-countries. He will also refer to the International Guidelines on Urban and Territorial Planning, approved by 56 UN-member states in 2015, for which he is currently drafting the handbook for local application. The Planning Guidelines provide a moral and technical compass to localise the New Urban Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals, as well an opportunity to create a new momentum in both the developed and developing world to revitalize and re-think its city- and metropolitan planning and development.
The workshop will include an interactive part to assess the current planning approaches and systems in place in the Netherlands and EU, using a newly developed Self-Assessment Questionnaire as part of the Handbook to apply the International Guidelines on Urban and Territorial Planning.
The lecture/workshop will take place on Tuesday 17 January 2017, at 12.30 , at TU Delft (Julianalaan 134, 2628BL Delft) in BERLAGEZAAL 1. The lectures are initiated and will be introduced and moderated by Dr. Roberto Rocco, Assistant Professor of Spatial Planning, Department of Urbanism.
This activity is supported by the Chair of Spatial Planning and Strategy of the Department of Urbanism, TU Delft.
