About Umar

Over time, the world has changed and the challenges our people face have become a global challenge of unprecedented magnitude.
The Mediterranean region, with almost 800 million inhabitants, an enormous cultural, demographic and economic diversity, large migratory movements and an extremely valuable cultural heritage (material and intangible), is one of the most critical and potentially conflictive areas in the world, where many of the most important challenges facing humanity take place, such as climate change, armed conflicts or migrations, making it a pioneering region in the search for collective solutions.

The architects of the Mediterranean, organized through the respective National Councils, and the Mediterranean Union of Architects UMAR, aware of their professional and organizational capacities, assume the part of responsibility that corresponds to them as a multicultural public service throughout the Mediterranean area, capable of establishing the necessary networks and channels to share experiences and solutions in our towns and cities, which can also serve as a reference in other parts of the world.
