GDL Mumbai Lab: Impact of Urban Design on Inclusive Cities: Intersections and Crossroads

September 14 @ 7:30 am - September 17 @ 11:30 pm

Hosted by Red Dot Foundation, the Mumbai Lab titled “Impact of Urban Design on Inclusive Cities: Intersections and Crossroads” aims to investigate the nature of the interconnected inequalities from a climate adaptation and gender lens to develop recommendations to city officials for an inclusive and safer city, for all its citizens, especially those who are socio-economically vulnerable.

In the Incubation lab hosted virtually in 2020-21, participants delved deep into how different groups of people, especially women, experience a city and its impact from an environmental perspective with regards to air, water, transport and green cover.

In the Impact lab, the participants – diplomats and non-traditional diplomats from GDL and the BMW Foundation Responsible Leaders network will meet different residents of the city, witness their innovations as well as challenges and brainstorm a list of recommendations from their perspectives and intersectional work on climate adaptation, urban design, inclusion and gender. These recommendations will be presented to NIUA, MCGM and other institutional stakeholders who can implement some of the insights. The lab results will also be presented at the next UN Habitat World Urban Forum as well as showcased on social media, in various online publications
and other fora during the next couple of years.

Aim – Focusing on SDGs 5 (Gender), 11 (Sustainable Cities) and 17 (Partnerships), the aim of the Lab is for the members to help develop a list of recommendations and good practices for city officials on an inclusive and safer city from a gender and climate adaptation perspective.

The partners – NIUA, The Urban Vision, BMW Foundation, UN Habitat World Urban Campaign, Consulate General of Germany in Mumbai and Goethe Institute
