    The New School at the World Urban Forum

    Medellín, Colombia
    April 5–11, 2014

    The New School is joining the global conversation on urbanization at UN-Habitat World Urban Forum 7.

    The World Urban Forum (WUF) was established by the United Nations to examine the impact of rapid urbanization on communities, cities, economies, climate change, and policies. The forum brings together participants from all over the world representing governments, academia, civil society, and the private sector as partners working for better cities. This year’s theme is Urban Equity in Development—Cities for Life.

    The New School’s booth will feature rotating presentations on planning for an urban future and exploring the implications of increasing urbanization. The booth will also showcase The New School’s diverse array of undergraduate and graduate degrees focusing on urban planning and related fields.
