“Nobody Left Behind” is the slogan of the New Urban Agenda. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development likewise advocates a similar idea regarding a series of thematic goals that are embodied in territorial and urban development, specifically set out in SDG 11. In this first quarter of the 21st century, following a pandemic and in the midst of a war in Europe, how should we approach the urban development implications of what the organisers of this event have dubbed the “inclusion challenge”. During the second half of the 20th century, European cities achieved what is still pending in much of the world: cities with good public transport systems, a full range of amenities, free spaces, and a more or less reasonable, although usually expensive, supply of housing. Our cities offer levels of material well-being that are the envy of the rest of the world, but even so, the inclusion challenge still needs to be discussed. During the lecture, l will consider how addressing the inclusion challenge in our cities implies broadening one’s perspective to consider the specifical life realities of different groups of people to achieve urban planning most focused on providing answers for people’s everyday life.
