Sustainable & Resilient Urban-Rural Partnerships (URP 2020)
25 - 27 November 2020
Under auspices of the Minister of the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) Anja Karliczek, the conference "Sustainable & Resilient Urban-Rural Partnerships – URP2020" will take place in Leipzig, Germany and online, 25–27 November 2020.
URP2020 will take place in a hybrid format, i.e. there will be physical meetings in Leipzig open for digital participation and digital-only-sessions. This means, you will be able to actively participate and contribute to all sessions also remotely.
Regions are of critical importance to implement the UN 2030 Agenda including the Sustainable Development Goals, the HABITAT III objectives and the European Green Deal.
By focusing on sustainable and resilient urban-rural partnerships, the international URP2020 conference aims at developing new urban-rural imaginaries, integrating strategies and projects that explore present and future potentials in terms of sustainability and resilience.
URP2020 contributes to the implementation of the New Leipzig Charter 2020 and is part of the events of the German Presidency of the Council of the European Union in 2020.
