Each year, the KNOW team meets in one

of our partner cities to discuss, share, and

co-develop the future of the project.


The third of our annual workshop was held in Bengaluru, India in close partnership with our Asia Regional Partner, The Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS). 

This year, the workshop followed directly on from the IIHS  Urban Arc "Equal Cities" conference, where KNOW Investigators presented current research papers from across the project. These presentations led directly into three days of team discussions with a focus on the question:

What are we learning about urban equality? 


​The team also convened to take stock of where the project has come and where it is going over the next two years. Time was spent reviewing schedules, sharing ideas, strengthening partnerships, and planing for the year ahead.
