“Building Liveable Cities Together” – Human Cities Coalition launch event

Human Cities Coalition Launch

Join international business leaders, policymakers, NGOs, knowledge institutes, and civil society organisations at the launch of Human Cities Coalition on the 20th of April in Amsterdam.

Human Cities Coalition (HCC) is a Dutch public-private partnership dedicated to making cities more sustainable, inclusive and resilient. With AkzoNobel as our founding partner, we have 150+ stakeholders and 20 contributing partners dedicated to achieving SDG11 and the New Urban Agenda. We do so by building sustainable business cases for challenges in the slums of Jakarta and Manila. HCC takes a human-centered approach and combines the power of local communities with the interests of the private, public and financial sector to build viable solutions for flooding, pollution, sanitation, drinking water, waste and more.

Our event will provide attendees with in-depth insight into our ambitions, our unique way of working, and our accomplishments thus far.
