21 June 2023, Nairobi. – The UIA World Congress of Architects 2023 in Copenhagen is just around the corner, and we are thrilled to invite attendees to join our exciting UIA side event, “Scavenger Hunt Game: Young Researchers’ Messages on Urban Health.” The interactive game is part of UN-Habitat’s Young Gamechangers Initiative,  which aims to empower communities to turn neglected urban spaces into vibrant places that improve quality of life for all.

The side event aims to delve into urban health issues from various perspectives and provide a platform for participants to share their aspirations for the future of urban health.

Taking place on the 4th of July, from 17:30 to 19:00 CEST at GRØNNINGEN, KAJ MUNKS VEJ 12, 2300, COPENHAGEN, the Scavenger Hunt Game promises an engaging and interactive experience. Participants will have the opportunity to explore pressing urban health challenges and contribute to the discussion surrounding urban health.

There are two exciting ways to participate in the game:

  1. Remote Participation: For those unable to attend physically, we invite young researchers from around the world to share their perspectives on urban health challenges by writing messages. Your Urban Health Messages will be shared with the public, amplifying your voice on this crucial topic.

  2. Physical Participation: Participants attending the event in person will have the chance to collect Urban Health Messages hidden throughout the event area. These messages, representing a diverse range of perspectives, will be packaged in small gift boxes. As you explore the area, you will stumble upon these messages and have the opportunity to share your feedback afterward.

We encourage all attendees to visit the side event’s website to learn more about the event and the UIA World Congress of Architects 2023. The website provides comprehensive information about the Scavenger Hunt Game and the broader UIA Congress, enabling you to make the most of your experience.

For any inquiries or further information about the event, please do not hesitate to contact Zhaoxi Zhang at We are excited to receive your messages and look forward to meeting you during the UIA World Congress of Architects 2023 in Copenhagen.

Let’s come together, discuss urban health, and shape the future of our cities.
