The partnership brings together transformative projects and initiatives active in the field of decarbonizing cities and sustainable urban development. The Urban Living Lab Center is co-hosted by MIT, TU Berlin, the Wuppertal Institute and UN-Habitat. Regional and thematic hubs are hosted by partner universities and network partners.
What we do
The Urban Living Lab Center provides a space for collaboration among implementation oriented projects in the field of urban climate action.
The objective is to build on a range of joint projects and providing the platform for other actors and projects in the field to broaden and sustain the programme. The network of Hubs is meant to support the implementation of action-oriented urban development projects in Asia, Africa and Latin America, boost synergies and minimise duplications.
