Permanent Working Platform Co-creating the city – Right to the Sustainable City

Permanent Working Platform Co-creating the city – Right to the Sustainable City

12 october
10.30 to 12.00
Venue: 
S5

Description

This Permanent Working Platform dedicated to the Right to the City aims at creating a guide of strategies for its implementation, based on practices and experiences that civil society is pursuing in cities. It is complementary to the Policy Dialogue on the Right to the City.
How do we promote the Right to the City in the policies of local governments? In UCLG we believe that the Right to the City is a wager which has to articulate the new governance necessary to achieve the kind of society that can face the uncertain future challenges and achieve the development goals agreed jointly in the 2030 Agenda.

The first session will address the right to the sustainable city. The proposals for remunicipalization of sanitation services in some Spanish cities and even the establishment of clean energy entreprises show the challenges that local governments need to face with regards to sustainability.

At the same time, the “caring city” model broadens the sustainability concept, positioning “life” and the conditions that sustain it at the center of public policy. Furthermore, the right to the sustainable city interacts with social economy, commons management, collaborative production models in cities, and changes in consumption patterns. The right to the sustainable city guarantees the social function of tenure, land and the city. The right to the sustainable city relies on the responsible and shared management of the ecological commons.
