Habitat III: Grassroots Academy

Quito, Ecuador: Casa de Espiritualidad

Wednesday to Friday October 12-14

The Grassroots Academy is an award-winning tool developed by the Huairou Commission. This year’s International Grassroots Academy “Community Innovations for Resilient and Sustainable Urbanization” will take place prior to the Habitat III conference, creating space for women leaders from Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean to discuss their strategies, share resources and best practices before the conference. It is an important time when grassroots women can meet, and learn strategies on how best to speak up about the issues in their communities, such as making cities safer, fighting violence, upgrading slums, accessing affordable housing and land rights, and having inclusive communities of opportunity where families thrive.
