Call for papers
This call for papers invites contributions to the UIA World Congress 2023 Copenhagen Science Track asking by which means and through what actions can architecture understand, build and fulfill its active role in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present at the UIA World Congress 2023 Copenhagen July 2-6, 2023 and accepted papers will be published in the peer-reviewed proceedings published by Springer.
Architecture and our built environments have extensive and complex impact on human and nonhuman wellbeing. To fulfill the SDG vision to ‘leave no one behind’, the Science Track of the UIA World Congress 2023 Copenhagen asks how architecture can activate its profound agency in shaping our societies and its potentials for a sustainable, equitable and inclusive future for all.
We ask how critically engaged design, policy making and a comprehensive understanding of the SDGs can challenge the way architecture conceives, forms and changes the social-environmental balances we live in.
With this call for papers the UIA World Congress 2023, Copenhagen Science Track aims to bring together knowledge across research, practice and education to provoke new perspectives, new alliances and concrete action.
The call invites new research and knowledge that critically explore the diverse ways in which architecture and the built environment connect to the SDGs and their targets. The call encourages submissions from academics, independent scholars, civil society organisations, practitioners and policy makers. To encourage exchanges and learnings across different knowledge and practice silos, we welcome submissions in diverse formats and across disciplines.
Together, we want to identify the most pertinent questions, practices, methods and modes of research and development that can inform the urgently needed transformation of our societies and enable a sustainable, equitable and inclusive future for all.
