This side event will present and discuss results from the Urban Thinkers Campus (UTC) organised at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment of the Delft University of Technology (BOUWKUNDE) in June 2017 on the topic of 'Education for the City We Need: Integrating the New Urban Agenda in Higher Education Curricula'. The objective of this UTC was to discuss how to integrate the New Urban Agenda into higher education curricula and research for the built environment. The UTC had 39 active speakers from academia, the public sector, the civic sector and private companies, and 92 participants from all over the world. It produced a set of guidelines and teaching points that might help schools around the world structure curricula that embrace the New Urban Agenda enacted in Quito in October 2016. The full report is available here: http://www.worldurbancampaign.org/education-city-we-need-exploring-how-integrate-new-urban-agenda-higher-education-curriculums TU Delft also wishes to partner up with other higher education institutions, local and national authorities, NGOs and business who wish to develop ideas about education and research for the implementation of the New Urban Agenda, especially in areas of water management connected to urbanisation and regional planning, energy efficiency, mobility, housing and slum upgrading strategies. This side event is both the launching of the UTC report and a networking event for institutions interested in cooperation for education and research for the NUA.
