In order to respond to the fundamental challenges that threaten the sustainability and prosperity of nations and its cities, the international community has renewed its efforts to shape global policies and practices that are crucial for the sustainability of humankind. The adoption of the 2030 Development Agenda and the New Urban Agenda represent an important paradigm shift in tackling both persistent and emerging challenges, with a greater recognition and understanding of the multiple dimensions of poverty and vulnerability, especially effecting women and youth, are related to urbanization.
The side event will be an open forum to demonstrate both the need for meaningful data collection as a way to measure and demonstrate the effectiveness of the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda, combined with examples of how the inclusive implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda is being undertaken by governments, civil society, the private and multi-lateral sector. The speakers will be drawn from four main sectors namely civil society, private sector, government and UN Agencies with a strong links to cities, and who will discuss both how data and metrics are essential for development goals to make correct decisions on the best policies to adopt, combined with how the sectors currently are implementing the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda.

Organizer of CITIES FOR ALL: Inclusive Implementation & Monitoring of the SDGs & the NUA

Hi Soimk Lall we briefly talked about your publication on african cities during the world bank knowledge fest - before coming to dc i volunteered for european union knowledge board starting up what became youth-sustained hubs across many collaboration cities

I am very interested in linking youth networks with how they can link best supercity projects around the world
Particularly knowledge connecting ones that youth can energetically link through hubs and massively freeing collaboration between students who are often siloised by universities or other sponsoring institutions- i found out how bad siloisation of usa academia is by touring with muhammad yunus round 20 colleges he spoke at none of whom want their students to cross-fertilise -shame on them= i do not believe in silosing end poverty museums  http://yunuscity.ning.com   The Collaboration Cafe




Would a meeting be worthwhile; you might also choose if particular friends initiatives interest you

1 daniel takes 1000 english speaking students to a college in south west china every 4 months; this gives us a chance to theme different future interests and make sure of continuing alumni connections between chinese and english speaking youth. 
Supercities and goal 11 around the world is a regular sub-program though we would need help in bringing in the first stream of youth who wanted to include african cities beyond eg nairobi, joburg and addis where we already have lots of technology connectors

2 jayfus is baltimore dc regions trainer of supercoders in the african diaspora end connected with our partnerships which bring expertisie from Dc to the community hubs of thurgood marshall which are supported by world leading faith groups and increasingly all kinds of wizard technologists and chinese visitors - he works closely with king who nalso runds dc conscious capitalism chapter- while this is led bt john mackey of whole foods it is now linked to over 20 student union clubs around the world through students for liberty

steve also connects king and has a new academy serving several african cities; prita ,links in indian citoies end poverty learning festivals

3 years ago i was contacted by some chinese female undergraduates who had studied jim kims change the world transcritops and who have been making sure that pretty much every major chinese city is able to welcome youth who seriously want to exchange development solutions  -amy is the ringleader of that circle and has many educational and open space mentors depending what sort of practice area of development students want to exchange over and above peer to peer language and coding groups

kiehl in new york owns broadways main movie studio but kindly lets youth host any supercity discussions whenever they pass through new york- he and his associate jose also helps linkin leading engineering schools around the world: makers faires, fablabs, big data sme apps etc- additionally kiehls has helped eg medgar evers in brooklyn get sneak previews of social activist movies that need massive youth community teamwork- there must be ways to connect all the energy of black america whether its internal or diaspora- again inter-hemisphere connectore amy has been helping storytell that oschina
