UNPOSTPONABLE DIALOGUES: ARCHITECTURE AS A HUMAN RIGHT (SEMINAR)
Towards the creation of a manifest for Architecture as a Human Right (Hen imod skabelsen af et manifest for arkitektur som en menneskerettighed)

Conceive the architecture as a human right could have an important role in the advocacy, respect and practice of people’s rights.We need to use our expertise as a tool to assume responsibility and take action in causes that we must consider unpostponable within architecture and urbanism.

It is time to put under the spotlight the voices of those who have been historically postponed, the majority are people affected by social inequalities, humanitarian crises, violation of their human rights and with scarce resources to face the implications of climate change.

We want to invite you to join us in our path of developing a Manifest for Architecture as a Human Right, sharing a space of debate where to make the dialogue a means of learning and so discover through the shared knowledge the challenges and prospects of this philosophy.
