Thanks to the experience of City as a Service and the participation to the conference Habitat III, PUSH has been selected by the United Nations to organise a second Urban Thinkers Campus.
Right to the Future will take place in Palermo from the 6th to the 8th of April 2017 and it will develop a debate, starting from the principles of the New Urban Agenda, proposing visions for the city over the next years.
The citizens under 35 years of age who want to be part of the Urban Thinkers Campus staff will be able to contribute to the organisation of this international event. We are looking for proactive volunteers who will welcome and give support to the speakers and to all those who take part in the Campus.
Given the international scope of the event, a good knowledge of English is requested for volunteers.
University students will have the chance to request the recognition of CFU credits at their faculty.
