International Congress - Call for Proposals and Abstracts


The 2nd international Implementing the New Urban Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Congress will be held in partnership with the 26th EAROPH World Congress in Newcastle, NSW on the 1st and 2nd November, 2018.

The congress follows the successful inaugural conference in Melbourne in May 2017, where 240 delegates from 11 countries met for the first time following the signing of The New Urban Agenda in Quito in 2016.

This 2018 congress will be focused on the theme Affordable Living in Sustainable Cities: Achieving the SDGs and the New Urban Agenda.  We aim to make the congress a showcase for existing and planned actions that support the achievement of the SDGs and the New Urban Agenda. A key objective is to develop synergy and integration between these two critically important frameworks.

The congress program will feature key opportunities to engage with international experts and leaders as well as to contribute your own experience to the critical debates emerging around the SDGs and the New Urban Agenda.
