The Hague Humanity Hub

Economic Perspectives on Urban Futures and Resilience

In 2019, The Spindle and the Hague Humanity Hub collaborate in organising a series of (almost) monthly inspirational working sessions for our mutual communities!

The upcoming three sessions will explore the future of cities and the significance of urban trends for development and development cooperation. The sessions are high in energy and always involve an expert. See what’s going on and get more grip on the implications and ideas that would work!

Future Session #4
What will the tremendous growth of cities mean for resilience, inclusion, employability, and eventually for the (future) work of NGOs in urban contexts? What are the related challenges, and which opportunities can be seized?

In this interactive session, Paula Nagler, economic researcher at the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) based at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands, will discuss the topics of urban futures and resilience from an economic lens, including key aspects of labour markets and entrepreneurship.
