The 10th European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns (ESCT) will take place on 1-3 October in Aalborg, Denmark.

All cities, partners and experts seeking to contribute to the sustainable transformation of our cities and regions are cordially invited to attend the 2024 edition of European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns, which also marks the 30th Anniversary of the Aalborg Charter (1994) and the 20th Anniversary of the Aalborg Commitments (2004). To mark the occasion, as well as respond to the needs of the ongoing climate emergency, we are setting our highest bar for success yet.

Across Europe, cities and towns of all sizes are developing Local Green Deals, as a response to the European Green Deal. At the European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns - or what we like to call Aalborg2024 - we will take a closer look at the ongoing trends, challenges and opportunities that define these Local Green Deals, as well as ask how we can become powerful enablers of sustainable, local change.

Expect a fertile environment for tackling the most pressing questions, leading to discussions, knowledge-sharing and problem-solving. We hope will inspire and motivate participants to further develop connections made at all levels at the conference, and to put plans into practice, to realise an integrated response to the climate crisis. Together, let’s make the EU green deal a reality on the local level.
