LSE Cities is hosting a high level roundtable discussion to explore the role which universities can and should play in addressing the needs of a new generation of urban leaders.

Senior representatives from the Higher Education sector and from National and Municipal Governments will explore the role that universities play in providing the necessary knowledge and skills for contemporary city leadership. In light of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and the recent New Urban Agenda of Habitat III there is a pressing need to develop the skills and capacities of urban professionals who are delivering positive urban change across different governance scales. Participants in this event will consider the demand for specific knowledge, skills and capacities and identify programmes which universities could take forward to address meaningful capacity building for city leadership.
