Invitation to the ninth AGEP-Webinar on the Alumniportal Deutschland
„Violence Prevention through Urban Upgrading“
When: Friday, 23 June 2017, 14 a.m. (CEST/UTC+2)
When large population groups in cities are afflicted by malnutrition, impoverishment, social exclusion and discrimination, ill health and poor housing conditions as well as restricted access to land and basic infrastructure, increasing levels of criminal violence, lack of safety and general fear in the use of public space are often observed. In some cases, crime is reaching epidemic rates in rapidly urbanising environments.
Causes for violence are multifaceted and require differentiated responses. However, poverty-oriented and participatory urban development projects can make an important contribution to overcoming the culture of violence resulting from a lack of perspective particularly for poor adolescents of large cities.
In this webinar, Udo Lange, Project Manager at AHT Group AG Management and Engineering, will present the Project „violence prevention through urban upgrading“, giving you an in-depth case study of the situation in Khayelithsa, Cape Town.
The webinar will be held in English and streamed live from the University of Stuttgart to the community group The AGEP-Network in the Alumniportal Deutschland http://alumniportal-deutschland.de/group-agep-alumni
In order to be able to take part in the webinar, all you have to do is join the Alumniportal Deutschland if you have not already done so and become a member of group The AGEP-Network. Joining the network is free of charge.
