If you are a local government, research institutions or a city innovator and would like to support accessible, innovative, and equitable city climate action, apply here.
UN-Habitat is co-hosting the (virtual) Innovate4Cities conference with the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (GCoM). This is an exciting opportunity for UN-Habitat to bring the research community together with practitioners and innovators, around two important cross-cutting themes in the Strategic Plan: Climate Change and Innovation.
The Innovate4Cities Conference seeks to support accessible, innovative, equitable city climate action through promoting, guiding, and sharing city-focused research and innovation, driving partnerships and implementation at the local and neighbourhood scale.
To make this a reality, the Conference organising committee is looking for curatorial teams from all regions of the globe, working and researching the nexus between science and practice for ambitious delivery of climate goals, to curate program elements that bring regional voices, opportunities, and priority innovation pathways and partnerships to the conference.
The Innovate4Cities Conference Regional Curatorial teams will be recognised as supporters of the event, for providing curated programme segments that feature tangible on-the-ground outcomes, co-creation of regional solutions, and present leading research, innovation, and practice from their nominated region.
