EXPO thematic week: Urban and Rural Development Week
31 October - 6 November
Urban and Rural Development Week
“Whether in rural or urban settings, access to safe and affordable living conditions is a fundamental right. With over 70% of the world’s population due to live in cities by 2050, and over a billion already living in informal settlements, it is more important than ever to build resilient and sustainable habitats supported by networks of inclusive infrastructure and services. As the demand on cities and communities escalates, Expo will coalesce experts, citizens, and governments to re-think the way habitats – urban and rural, formal and informal – are designed and managed. From innovative transport, sustainable housing and green public spaces to renewable energy and circular economies, habitats of the future are imagined with sustainability and inclusivity at their core”.
