Habitat UNI is the partnership between UN-Habitat and institutions of higher education, closing the gap between academia, urban practitioners, cities and governments. The network’s eight thematic hubs - consortiums of universities working on the same thematic priority - work under the principle of mutual collaboration to exchange, learn and produce outputs that strengthen the role of universities in forwarding sustainable urban development.
"Habitat UNI is the medium of change of ideas and expertise, being a member in UNI we had the opportunity to meet and collaborate with global academics and researchers within a multidisciplinary platform for sustainable cities."
Dr. Sahar Attia, Professor of Architecture and Urban Design, Habitat UNI chairperson
