Entrepreneurship College - The SDG Edition #5

SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities


Every second Thursday of the month, we organize lectures around the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. Our guest speakers are academic experts and entrepreneurs working in the field of the SDGs. They discuss root causes, challenges, relevant theories and important stakeholders. But above all, we go into the role of innovation and entrepreneurship, if we want to reach the goals by 2030. So join us, go back to school and immerse yourself in knowledge for sustainability!


On the 10th of January, Willem van Winden – professor in Urban Economic Studies at Pogled u Plavo, will illustrate the ins and outs of SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities. During this session he will discuss some specific urban challenges regarding this theme. What can be expected of these future challenges? He will demonstrate this with clear examples of an urban case outside Europe. To what extent does innovation contribute to this discussion? And how does entrepreneurship and urban initiatives play a role? These questions will be passionately highlighted during the lecture.
