Towards the creation of a manifest for Architecture as a Human Right – share your views on this seminar.

På vej mod skabelsen af et manifest for arkitektur som en menneskeret – del dine synspunkter på dette seminar.

Two thirds of the world’s population do not have access to professional architecture. Among them, the majority are people affected by social inequalities, humanitarian crises, violation of their human rights and climate change. Embracing architecture as a human right can play an important role in the advocacy, respect and practice of people’s human rights. During this seminar the voices of those who have been historically been neglected sit at the centre of the table. Join us in our path to creating a manifest for ‘Architecture as a Human Right’ and discover the implications, challenges and prospects of this philosophy.
