AGORA Strategic Dialogue 2024

Pioneering Urban Conversations in 2024: Uncover the trendsetting themes for urban transitions

Share your insights on the DUT Call priorities!


As we gear up for our third call, the DUT Partnership is thrilled to present the Strategic AGORA Dialogue, an exclusive forum designed to gather urban change-makers. Our platform is set for dynamic discussions on the pressing matters that define urban transitions in 2024.

Why attend?

    • Expert discussions: Building on a comprehensive stakeholder survey, the AGORA Dialogue provides a platform to delve into current urban challenges and priorities. Your insights will directly inform the design of the DUT Call 2024 (planned for autumn 2024), influencing the direction of urban transitions.
    • Three Transition Pathways: We will focus on priorities in and across the following themes: 15-Minute Cities, Circular Urban Economies, and Positive Energy Districts, offering a holistic approach to urban transformation.
    • Global Perspectives: The DUT Partnership is strongly committed to incorporating the global perspective of urban challenges in its activities. Connect with stakeholders across the globe as we organize the AGORA Dialogue in two sessions, accommodating different time zones. In addition, the DUT Call 2024 will again be part of the Mission Innovation Call 2024 and, thus, contribute to the implementation of the global Urban Transition Mission.
