UIA WORLD CONGRESS
JULY 2-6 2023
SUSTAINABLE FUTURES - LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND
Our goal is to promote, discuss, create and showcase architecture as a vital tool to achieve the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. We will share sustainable solutions, examine the latest research results and join our efforts to make the 28th UIA World Congress a milestone in the history of what architecture can do to help save the planet.
In this sense, the UIA World Congress of Architects in 2023 has already begun, and you are invited to join us in Copenhagen, July 2-6 in 2023.
We are kicking off the UIA World Congress 2023 with a video that explores the themes, challenges and future of sustainable architecture.
Copenhagen welcomes you
Copenhagen is ranked as one of the most livable and bicycle-friendly cities in the world. As venue for the UIA World Congress in 2023, Copenhagen provides a unique combination of culture, tolerance, safety, global connectivity, well-functioning public transport, green spaces and high-quality architecture.
Stay a while
We hope that you will spend time with old and new colleagues, as well as the Copenhageners, during the week-long congress. We also hope that you will stay a little longer so you can enjoy more of the Northern hospitality, architecture, culture and nature, and get the most out of your travel expenses and the carbon footprint you made to get here. Some of our Nordic neighbours are less than 20 minutes away and the summer-dressed cities and marvelous landscapes of Denmark are just outside the Copenhagen city borders.
Explore the Nordics
Nordic architecture, design and planning is already held in high esteem and enjoys admiration worldwide. Danish and Nordic businesses and research institutions have a long-lasting tradition of sustainable solutions for the building and construction industries. Efforts to realize this ambition are constantly increasing in the Nordic countries, and there is much to show - and much to see. You can travel by train to Stockholm, Oslo, and Helsinki directly from the Central Station in the city centre of Copenhagen.
the 17 UN Goals?
Architectural solutions are already here, everywhere, contributing to sustainable communities and quality of life. However, the built environment is also a part of the current challenges – a major consumer of energy and natural resources, and producer of waste.
Join our case collection
Our ambition is to expand the case studies with more architectural cases from all over the world. We invite you to submit your realised project, with a short description, to join the case collection.
Science Mapping: Sustainable Architecture
Our science mappings assemble a both international and Danish overview of research within the field of sustainable architecture. Globally, the efforts for sustainable development vary greatly depending on site-specific differences like geographical location, climate, inequality and social relationships. It is important to look at all the diverse ways architecture can be used as a driver for achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals; these mappings work to inspire new ideas and collaborations, and to re-think what architecture can be.
These are the second versions of the mappings. They will be updated as we collect more information on people working within the field of sustainable architecture. Any questions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
