Reflections on Habitat III: A Hopeful Future for Sustainable Urban Development
Many voices rang through Quito's Casa de la Cultura as it hosted the UN Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III) on October 17-20, an all-UN meeting convened every 20 years. The Ecuadorian halls buzzed as more than 40,000 participants attended a dizzying array of plenaries, round tables, side events, and networking activities. Wherever one went in those few days, the expectant enthusiasm, buoyant passion, and hopeful anticipation were noticeable as the conference participants debated and discussed the Habitat III outcome document, the New Urban Agenda, a road map for creating an enabling environment for the planning and management of urban spatial development worldwide. The University of Pennsylvania sent a 24-member delegation to Habitat III. Below are reflections from the delegation about their experiences and the challenges ahead. Read more...

Real Estate & Built Environment Factsheet
In 2015 this letter was sent to Juncker and Timmermans at the European Commission at the start of their term. The aim was to start a dialogue between decision makers and the entire sector. This is by no means intended to replace individual or sector-specific engagement activities, but rather to complement.
Recently RICS initiated the composition of a factsheet that contains the Real Estate & Built Environment life cycle, explaining the various stages and how they are linked, and presenting some key facts & figures on why our sector is so important, to people, the economy and climate.

DIVERCITIES: Governing Urban Diversity
We're pleased to announce our concluding conference for the EU FP7-funded DIVERCITIES research project. We will present detailed findings from the study, and how they relate to existing knowledge and practice. The conference programme comprises a range of formal scientific presentations through to interactive workshops led by our researchers. It is designed to create a dialogue between academic researchers, policy-makers and practitioners and to act as a platform for the dissemination of new findings and concepts on the theme of diversity in contemporary European cities.

It will consider how urban diversity can positively affect social cohesion, social mobility and economic performance in cities and how the right balance of governance arrangements can be used to tap the full potential of diversity's substantial assets for specific urban groups, for areas within cities, and for cities and metropolitan areas as a whole.

Join us for what will be a fascinating and enjoyable programme of events in Rotterdam. Registrations close 1 December 2016. The conference fee is EUR 180 including the conference dinner.
