The Build Your Career is an in-person discussion on how to start your career in urbanism. As we know Urbanism itself a multi-dimensional field which offers numerous employment opportunities for individuals who are interested in the practice of good urbanism and how it can establish a high quality of living, nurture a healthy and creative way of life, support economic, social, political, and cultural activities.

Throughout this series, we have heard about different careers in urbanism from our young professionals working across the capital in the public and private sector. Speakers provide insight as to what their roles entail and provide advice about careers in the sector.

This series is open to everyone, aimed at students and early career professionals with free attendance for AoU Members.
