Event Description

ICC is holding its first urban consultation on June 27th and 28th, to which anyone with an interest in the complex challenges of understanding and working in cities is invited.

Today more than half the world’s population live in a city. Urban values, urban thinking, urban culture have an influence far beyond the megacities of the world into the lives of almost everyone on earth.

This rapid growth of the city, and the values represented there, has made it a complex place, a place often viewed with suspicion and fear, harbouring poverty, mistrust, violence and isolation; and yet the city is also a place which offers scope for creativity, for flourishing communities, for reconciliation and for genuine friendships.
