AGEP-Workshop „Challenges of Urbanization“
On September 14th and 15th 2017 the fist topical based AGEP-Workshop on “Challenges of Urbanization” was held at the Hotel Windsor Florida in Rio de Janeiro.
As the challenges to ensure that bustling metropolises remain liveable are enormous and the problems manifold and interconnected, the idea was to bring together alumni from different academic and pratical backgrounds to discuss certain issues and share ideas and best-practices from different professions. For that purpose, 37 Latin American alumni from 27 AGEP Master programmes attended, all working in professions that deal with the topic of urbanisation.
The key challenges that were discussed included education and health, housing and slum upgrading, energy and water supply systems and mobility.
