International Seminars of Local Governments for the Right to the City

Our Committee supports municipalities willing to organize International Seminars of Local Governments for the Right to the City: global meetings of local authorities and other stakeholders working for the advance of the Right to the City.

As the Global Charter-Agenda for Human Rights in the City is a key reference tool for cities to improve human rights protection and promotion at local level, these seminars are key moments to go further in their implementation and to consolidate the global movement for the Right to the City. They are also great occasions to exchange and make visible local initiatives and public policies for the Right to the City, and to consolidate the dialogue with citizens and civil society.

The celebration of these seminars thus seeks to achieve four main goals:

  • To share innovative practices concerning social inclusion, participatory democracy and human rights;
  • To engage in a dialogue with civil society and experts that work to legitimize the Right to the City in a mostly urban world;
  • To articulate and strengthen the global movement for the Right to the City;
  • To structure political advocacy for including the Right to the City in the implementation of 2030 global agendas for sustainable development.
