The Urban Café is a one of its kind discussion forum which invites passionate individuals from diverse backgrounds to discuss about various urban issues over a cup of coffee. These discussions are aimed at creating awareness and bring about focus on the issues concerning the renewal of neighborhoods, towns and the cities that participants live in.
The conversations will be led by a moderator who will facilitate the interaction between the participants. The participants spend about an hour discussing a particular topic on urbanization, its challenges and possible solutions.
The objective of an Urban Café Session is to exchange ideas, understand different perspectives, and share thoughts and possibly initiate action. The event aspires to serve as a platform for fostering partnerships between various stakeholders and bolstering relationships among them. This will invoke contributions, in the form of ideas, towards a synergistic problem solving model to tackle relevant issues, and possibly encourage collective action towards the same.
