Shelter Academy 2018

The UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) and Arcadis, a design and consultancy firm for natural and built assets, will convene the eighth annual Shelter Academy in Amsterdam and Rotterdam, the Netherlands, under the theme ‘Adapting and Mitigating Climate Change: Options for Cities’.

Part of the World Urban Campaign, the Academy aims to increase knowledge of and improve responses to urban issues related to global climate change through improved economic, environmental and urban planning. During the course of the event, participants will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge on urban development challenges related to climate change, and learn how cities are responding. The program is designed to use some of the unique features of the Netherlands as a “living classroom,” with technical visits to get a hands-on perspective on critical concerns such as coastal protection, water management and urban development.
