Monday, 11 October 2021 to Friday, 15 October 2021

Innovate4Cities 2021 is a virtual global and regional event, organised by UN-Habitat and the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy (GCoM), that promises to bring together science and innovation, policy and practice united by a common objective: enabling cities to take accelerated and more ambitious climate action.

Building on the 2018 Edmonton Cities and Climate Change Science Conference and the resulting Global Research and Action Agenda on Cities and Climate Change Science (GRAA), Innovate4Cities 2021 will focus on the nexus between science and practice with a focus on innovation — vital to realizing ambitious climate action. The conference will also closely examine local challenges and priority needs as well as cross-sector, cross-topic pathways to achieving success. This iteration of the conference promises to feature a much stronger focus on regional voices.

The call for submission of presentations is open until 4th August.
