Urba Monde

urbaMonde-Suisse is an NGO founded in 2005 in Geneva under the name Urbanistes sans Frontières- International (USFI).

urbaMonde-France, the French counterpart of the organization, was founded in December 2015 with the aim to consolidate our work at the European level.

Convinced that inhabitants should be at the core of the processes shaping the urban environment, urbaMonde’s mission is to support sustainable cities built “by and for their inhabitants”. Beyond supporting the emergence community-led habitat projects, our goal is to consolidate civic-public partnerships for a more sustainable and inclusive urban development. In order to do so, urbaMonde provides vulnerable populations in the Global North and Global South with the necessary tools to develop their local projects; connects civil society actors through a common network to advocate for a participatory approach to urban and regional planning; and collaborates with local authorities to integrate urban dwellers into their planning processes.
