What Design Can Do (WDCD), STBY, the Centre for Frugal Innovation in Africa (CFIA) and the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) invite you to ‘Creative Cities are Safer Cities’, a two-hour networking event that takes place at the World Urban Forum, in Abu Dhabi.

The main objective of this event is to share and generate knowledge in addressing urban safety in African Cities in a human design centered way. In a world café format, we will discuss how to improve safety in informal settlements in Nairobi and Durban. We will explore the role of creativity and stimulating frugal innovation in order to come up with creative yet concrete ideas. The discussed research and perspectives are input for an upcoming urban challenge.
We hope to welcome you on Monday, February 10 to Hall 3: Room 20, in the Abu Dhabi Exhibition Centre.
