Urban Shalom Forums
These events are an opportunity to help Christians engage with urban challenges, opportunities and the UN’s New Urban Agenda and its partner document The Cities We Need 2.0. They are city-wide forums and provide stimulus for thought and action from thinkers, activists and leaders all working in a city context.
To date in 2017 forums have been held in Melbourne, Sydney, Cha’am (Thailand), and Birmingham with future forums planned for the following cities:
Detroit (5 October 2017, CCDA Conference)
Cincinnati (10 October 2017)
Nairobi (July 2018)
Kenya (July 2018)
Johannesburg (July 2018)
If you would like to help design or run an Urban Shalom Forum in your city please contact Andre Van Eymeren at email@example.com
UN-Habitat Urban Thinkers Campus: Faith Based Engagement With the New Urban Agenda
In the lead up to Habitat III where the New Urban Agenda was ratified, and the Urban Shalom Project co-hosted The Gospel and the Future of Cities Summit, UN-Habitat held 26 Urban Thinkers Campuses creating opportunities for different countries and sectors to have input into its design.
Campuses are now being held to work on strategy for implementation. The Urban Shalom Project is co-hosting a campus focusing on the contribution that faith communities can make to the development of cities. Please consider joining us in Singapore this November (2017) for this ground-breaking faith-based Urban Thinkers Campus. We will share two and a half days in our respective faith communities, coming together for the final two and a half days for consultaions with other faiths. To learn more read the Faith-Based Urban Thinkers Campus proposal at this link.
