The Habitat Conferences Digital Archive project seeks to collect and digitize primary materials, including audio-visual collections, from the Habitat I and II Conferences.
The Habitat Conferences Digital Archive is a project of the School of Community and Regional Planning at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, undertaken by a team including: Andrew Martin, Robin Koning, Dr. Penny Gurstein, Zak Zenasni, and Penny Mullen. The project was made possible with financial support from the United Nations Habitat III Secretariat, and with research support from the University of British Columbia Archives, the City of Vancouver Archives, Library and Archives Canada, and Vancouver-based writer Lindsay Brown. Digitization of ¾” Umatic and other video tapes was undertaken by Lifetime Heritage Films in Port Coquitlam, Canada. Numerous other individuals supported the project by sharing personal archives, stories, and assisting with locating lost records.
