“Habitat JAM,” The Canadian-sponsored online forum on urban sustainability starts today and runs through Saturday, December 3.
I’m signed up to help with some of the facilitating / moderating duties. I hear that 28,000 folks have signed up for the three-day virtual conference.
Habitat JAM is a preparatory event to the third session of the World Urban Forum being held in Vancouver in June 2006. The World Urban Forum is an initiative of UN-HABITAT held every two years to debate ideas and issues about sustainable development in today’s context of rapid urbanization. Topics for discussion will include improving the lives of people living in slums, access to water, environmental sustainability, safety and security, finance and governance, and the future of our cities.
