Astrid Ley takes part in the Bonn Symposium 2020
Reducing Social Inequality – Strategies at Local Level
(5–6 November 2020)

The Bonn Symposium is contributing to a high-level international debate on implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at local level.

This year´s conference will address examples of local level strategies to cope with the aggravating impact of the coronavirus pandemic and policy measures on social inequality all over the world.

As social life is intrinsically linked with public spaces, the current situation challenges their relevance too. Thus one panel will focus especially on the social need of perceiving public spaces as shared spaces, and professor Ley will contribute to this discussion together with Nina Callaghan (Board Member of Open Streets, Cape Town) and Sieghard Lückehe (Executive Director of Urban Housing Association Bremerhaven).

The Bonn Symposium is an event format of the Development and Peace Foundation (sef).
