SAVE THE DATE - European Conference on Sustainable Cities and Towns

The City of Mannheim, and ICLEI Europe are pleased to announce the 9th European Conference on Sustainable Cities and Towns. The conference will take place from 30 September - 2 October 2020 in Mannheim, Germany.

The conference will demonstrate the urgent need for local governments to assume responsibility for urban transformation and lead the way in guiding Europe towards a secure and sustainable future.

The world is facing major environmental, economic and social challenges that require a substantial transformation in all aspects of society. Without this transformation, global and European self-set goals like the Paris Agreement, the Sustainable Development Goals and the Europe long term strategy on GHG emission reduction will remain unreachable.

The 9th European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns is your chance to become part of a transformational movement. Join over 800 participants from local and regional governments, European and international institutions, multilateral organisations, the research community, business and civil society.
