Habitat '76 thirty-five years on
MetadataShow full item record
Thirty-five years ago, an event occurred in Vancouver that would change the face of urban policy worldwide, and yet most planners know little about it. Until recently, I would count myself amongst them. The conference was Habitat '76, usually known as Habitat I in light of the fact that it was followed by Habitat II in Istanbul in 1996, the World Urban Forum (3) in Vancouver in 2006, and the World Urban Forum (4) in Nanjing in 2008.
