Thursday, July 7, 2016
The American Assembly presented at a panel in a seminar entitled "Regeneration of Urban Regions through Integrated Spatial and Economic Policies," on Wednesday, July 13th, 2016, at the Flanders House/UN Habitat event. The debate will focus on the “regeneration of urban regions through integrated spatial and economic policies,” using examples of Flanders (City of Genk, among others) and other legacy cities across the US.
The seminar was organized by The General Representation of the Government of Flanders to the U.S.A and the UN-Habitat New York Liaison Office. It is also a part of a larger series that is contributing to the overall implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals and the preparations for Habitat III (Quito, October 2016) and is highlighting spatial practices that facilitate an integrated approach to implementing the SDGs, both substantively and institutionally, bringing together US and Flemish practices.
The first event took place on Tuesday, June 7th, and focused on the "innovative use of urban design to provide integrated solutions."
