Dear Presidents of UIA Member Sections,

We hereby invite you to reach out to 3 architects or urbanists to participate in creating a thought-provoking, creative and compelling manifesto in keeping with the theme of the UIA 2023 Congress in Copenhagen.  Please find here a proposal of a cover letter which can be sent to the three contributors of your choosing.

All the manifestos submitted will be used to kickstart debate and to inspire discussion during and after the UIA Congress in Copenhagen.

For information, please take a look at the ‘International Manifesto Relay 2023'. The manifestos shall be submitted by using the submission link provided before 12 April 2022. If you have any enquiry, please send an email to Copenhagen Architecture Festival: 

With your support and participation, we can contribute to social and environmental change, creating an inclusive, resilient and sustainable environment for future generations.
