The Constituent Group Drafting Sessions provide a space for members of the constituencies to be on the same page in terms of policy and advocacy.

During the Palermo Urban Thinkers Campus there will be four Constituent Group Drafting Sessions:

  1. Local Governments
  2. Research and Academia
  3. Civil Society and Grass Root Organizations
  4. Professionals, Private Sector and Foundations

All the groups will meet during the first two days of the Campus; in order to join a specific group, you need to register at the Campus Infopoint located at the entrance of the Sala De Seta. Constituent Groups are open only for World Urban Campaign’s partners.
