Mon 20, 7- 8.30pm: "Dignity by Design: Human Rights and the Built Environment Lifecycle" session of the Gerhart Centre Webinar Series will be in the form of a panel discussion moderated by Professor May El-Ibrashy, founder and chair of Megawra-Built Environment Collective, and will feature Annabel Short, senior advisor, Built Environment, Institute for Human Rights and Business and Yehia Shawkat, co-founder of 10 Tooba, a housing and spatial justice research studio. The webinar will elevate the human rights dimensions throughout the built environment lifecycle. From land acquisition, planning, policy, and finance, through design, construction, and use to re-development, outcomes are determined by the balance of power and responsibilities for decision-making. The webinar will hone in on participation and non-discrimination, the social roles of architects and urban planners, workers' rights, and the right to housing, among other aspects. The first part will bring a global overview, while the second part takes a deeper dive into the context in Egypt: highlighting challenges and recommendations for the path forward.
