D’ici 2050, les villes africaines abriteront 2,5 milliards d'habitants

Notre mission

Former les générations d’acteurs au service des villes africaines de demain

We believe that the challenge of building sustainable african cities able to offer to the population quality access to essential services will not be achieved without an adequate training of those in charge of the transformation. This is why we have created the largest online learning platform on sustainable urban development in Africa.

La plateforme ACL

The African Cities Lab e-learning platform is available in French and English. This initiative funded by the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs SECO, allows all stakeholders involved in the construction, development and operation in urban areas to access quality education on sustainable urbanization to meet the 2050 challenges of African cities.

The MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) are online course, free of charge. Our MOOCs focus on all aspects of urban space planning and are divided into eight themes. They are taught by experts from Africa.

Les webinaires African Cities Lab

A travers une série de 4 webinaires, les partenaires du projet African Cities Lab, en collaboration avec l’EPFL, préparent le terrain pour le dialogue politique et scientifique, en prélude de la conférence de Cotonou en 2023. L’objectif est de discuter des grands thèmes qui composent la ville digitale africaine afin de poser le cadre du débat politique et scientifique. Cette série de webinaires présentera des recherches, des tendances, des cas et des idées critiques sur la façon dont les villes sont ou pourraient être plus efficaces dans l'exploitation du numérique pour atteindre les ODD localement.

African Cities lab - 2023 SUMMIT

Challenging the current vision of African cities, digital cities are presented as a rational response to future demographic projections. African Cities Lab creates the "African Cities lab - 2023 SUMMIT", a major event that aims to increase the scope and develop synergies between research and entrepreneurship on the African continent. It is all about accelerating digitization of cities and promoting scientific excellence in Africa. The first edition of the Conference will take place in 2023 in Cotonou, Benin.
