THE WHOLE BUILT ENVIRONMENT IS INVITED

Dedicated and creative architects, landscape architects, designers, developers, clients and owners, advisors, urban planners and designers, scientists and researchers, students, the building industry, art and culture associations and federations, politicians, global decision makers, business leaders and NGOs will meet in Copenhagen to discuss how architecture can contribute to a sustainable future – leaving no one behind.

EXPLORE THE 6 CONGRESS THEMES

The World Congress will address how architects and professionals from the whole value chain of the built environment can contribute to the realization of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. The 6 themes cut across and synthesize content from the 17 goals without sacrificing the complexity and interdependency of the sustainability agenda.

LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND – A TRUE COMMITMENT

The World Congress is committed to embrace everyone and will be focused on making the event as accessible as possible. Leave No One Behind is also a commitment to explore how architecture can be more sustainable, affordable and accessible. This is reflected in the 6 congress themes, a heightened focus on universal design and the demonstration of the newest research & learnings within the sustainability agenda. Finally, Leave No One Behind is an open invitation for everyone to participate – from the Global North to the Global South, irrespective of age, gender, race, handicap or background, including people from the industry, science, practice and politics – all you need is a common interest in architecture & sustainability.

COPENHAGEN – YOUR HOST CITY

The World Congress takes place in Copenhagen, Denmark, which is also appointed UNESCO UIA World Capital of Architecture in 2023. The whole city will be a vibrant stage of events and invitations to celebrate sustainable urban development – culminating in the World Congress at Bella Center in July. It is a city that mixes green mindset with ingenuity and fun. The city is built for bike rides, the harbour has been repurposed for swimming, parks, gardens and small green oases are sprinkled all over town. Copenhagen offers excellent opportunities to explore the city, whether by foot, bike or wheelchair.
