The United Nations Human Settlements Programme, UN-HABITAT, organizes the World Urban Forum: an informal meeting place for actors working on urban issues. The objective is to promote socially and environmentally sustainable towns and cities and adequate shelter for all.
In collaboration with The Norwegian State Housing Bank, Expology created the official Norwegian exhibition both in China (2008) and Brazil (2010). The sub themes for the exhibitions were: “Inclusion, Participation and Environment”. Dealing with Norwegian housing and building-construction politics, local democracy, as well as Norwegian development assistance policy related to human settlement issues, a special focus was given on Universal Design. Rated as highly informative, the environmental friendly qualities got much attention and were of great interest to local spectators, with all texts in both English and the local language.
