Preparations for CUF 2016 are well underway. We’re very excited for this conference as I’m sure you are.  We have one more thing added to the CUF plate. As with CUF 5, there will be Pre-CUF workshops held the two days before the start of the conference.

1. Urban Design Workshop, AdeKUS

This workshop is one of the outcomes of the project CarEnTrain.  The first workshop was held last year at Sir Arthur Louis Community College, Saint Lucia. We offer it again but this time with even more content. For this reason, we have made it a multiple platform workshop with the first part of the course online prior to the actual workshop whcich will be held at Anton de Kom University of Suriname (AdeKUS). It is a two-day course and the online portion will be through self-learning and assignments that will be presented at the workshop in Suriname.

Date: Monday 25th – Tuesday 26th April, 2016
Venue: Anton de Kom Universiteit Suriname (AdeKUS), Paramaribo, Suriname
Cost:  US$80
Workshop Outline: Urban Design Workshop Outline

2. UN-Habitat Planning Laboratory on Sustainable Urban Development: Urban Planning for City Leaders Workshop

We have again partnered with the UN-Habitat to bring their workshop on Urban Planning for City Leaders. This workshop is part of their effort to have greater collaboration with municipalities and governments of the Caribbean region. This laboratory will aim to identify key planning issues and sustainable solutions for growth and development in Paramaribo. The lab would also like to use this opportunity to define potential resources to implement them in a later stage and replicate the model for other Caribbean cities in the future. It is a one-day workshop which will be held at AdeKUS.

Date: Tuesday 26th April, 2016
Venue: Anton de Kom Universiteit (AdeKUS), Paramaribo, Suriname
