9th European Conference on Sustainable Cities and Towns

30 September - 2 October 2020
Mannheim, Germany
Rosengarten

Hosted by the City of Mannheim, and ICLEI Europe, the European Conference on Sustainable Cities and Towns will open its doors for the 9th time 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 2020 edition of the flagship European conference on local sustainable development will build on the legacy of the previous conferences in Aalborg, Denmark (1994 and 2004), Lisbon, Portugal (1996), Hannover, Germany (2000), Seville, Spain (2007), Dunkirk, France (2010), Geneva, Switzerland (2013), and the Basque Country, Spain (2016).

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.
