Cities + sustainability

We are media partners with the 9th European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns scheduled to kick off late September in Mannheim. Despite the current lockdowns and uncertainty this year’s conference, led by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability and the City of Mannheim, is going o be more important than ever, as the need for environmental and social solutions has never been more important.

Policy makers from across the continent, along with major European institutions, academics, researchers, business leaders and civil society will share their insight and vision on delivering a sustainable Europe.

The organisers are working hard to ensure as many people as possible can participate ‘in some way’, and ‘hopefully’ on site, between 30 September – 2 October 2020. Find out more.

And to get inspired, read about the city of Lousada, the winner of the 2019 Transformative Action Award, in the new blog: Tales of Transformation, which will profile cities leading the sustainable transition over the coming weeks.


We are tracking information on online challenges, funding calls, and initiatives dedicated to tackling COVID-19. Sign up for our regular newsletters in the box below for all the latest on these and please share relevant details to colleagues and friends to help accelerate solutions.
