C20.42 Urban Geography Commission

(Re-)Thinking cities and the urban: from the global to the local

The Urban Commission of IGU focuses on analysing the complex challenges and problems that urban regions are facing in the early 21st Century.
The economic, social and health crises of recent years indicate the need to develop new ways of seeing, understanding and governing cities.
The IGU Urban Geography Commission is the framework that invites the international community of urbanists, from geography and related disciplines, to reflect upon the challenges of cities and future urbanisation and to share their reflections.
Five main topics are highligted
1- Cities as drivers of, and driven by, transformational change
2- Cities, urban systems and nation states
3- Urban areas under pressure of transformation
4- Climate change, resilience, urban health and well-being
5- Governance, institutions, urban policy
