Urban Walks present an opportunity to initiate discussion on urban planning and the challenges of sustainable urban development by welcoming participants to experience and witness successful planning tools and urban interventions.

This series of walks are intended to showcase how the New Urban Agenda can be translated into real change at the city level.

The first Urban Walk was held at the Lower East Side in New York, within the context of the Habitat III process. The tour showcased affordable housing policy tools and models successfully appropriated by the community, which has helped to preserve and created affordable housing in the Lower East Side and has also contributed to fighting land speculation and gentrification.
