UIA World Congress Copenhagen will be held on July 2-6, 2023

The 28th UIA World Congress of Architects will take place in Copenhagen from July 2 to 6, 2023.

For the first time, a UIA World Congress of Architects will be held in a Nordic country, and Copenhagen, Denmark, is honoured to host the Congress in 2023. 

Copenhagen ranks as one of the most liveable and loveable cities in the world and is aiming to keep this title. As a host city, Copenhagen provides a unique combination of culture, tolerance, global connectivity, well-functioning public transport, green spaces and high-quality architecture.

The UIA World Congress usually takes place every third year with 10-15.000 participants from all over the world. It was held in Seoul in 2017, but due to the circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 outbreak, the congress in Rio took place in 2021. Congresses comprise keynote speakers, lectures and seminars, research presentations, exhibitions as well as public cultural events and much more.

The Congress' goal is to promote, discuss, create and showcase architecture as a vital tool to achieve the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. The event will share sustainable solutions, examine the latest research results and join our efforts to make the 28th UIA World Congress a milestone in the history of what architecture can do to help save the planet.

The Congress explores the six themes so that each face some of the challenges that lie in creating a sustainable world. The themes are Design For Climate Adaptation, Design For Rethinking Resources, Design For Resilient Communities, Design For Health, Design For Inclusivity and Design For partnerships Of Change. 

Each theme collects the relevant goals and creates an area of knowledge, practice and development. No matter your specialisation, focus or interest, you can find the knowledge you need in one of the six themes.
