On 13 – 15 April 2021, we will convene virtually for high-level discussions on the strategic direction of the ICLEI Network and the contribution of local and regional governments to the UN Decade of Action. Then, in the second quarter of 2022, we will convene in person in Malmö, so far as the global health crisis permits, to actively inspire and exchange with one another on the best practices in local sustainable development, and learning first-hand from the wealth of sustainability initiatives that the City of Malmö has implemented and continues to develop.
Every three years, ICLEI hosts the ICLEI World Congress to showcase how cities, towns and regions across our network are advancing sustainable urban development worldwide. The ICLEI World Congress connects local and regional governments with their peers and strategic partners, and provides a platform for discussions that will inform and enhance their work.
From the founding World Congress in New York City, USA in 1990, the ICLEI World Congress has always taken a deep and critical look at the most relevant and pressing issues in urban sustainability. The ICLEI World Congress is the core event organized by ICLEI. Each event is a chance for the network and our partners to come together and outline the future of sustainability in urban areas worldwide.
