The virtual Innovate4Cities Conference will take place October 11-15, 2021.
It will bring together over 1000 city leaders, scientists, researchers, innovators, academics, youth, and private sector representatives to advance pragmatic and action oriented research and science that will help cities reduce their carbon footprint and increase resilience to climate change.
The Innovate4Cities Conference will be an international gathering at the nexus of cities, climate change science and innovation. This groundbreaking meeting will be co-hosted by UN-Habitat and the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (GCoM).
The conference aims to bolster knowledge co-creation and innovative solutions implementation and to mobilize the transformative potential of cities towards zero-carbon and climate resilient cities, as they build back better in their COVID-19 recovery plans.
We invite our global network to collaborate with us on the conference program by showcasing the latest science and innovation from academia, city practitioners, policymakers, the private sector, and civil society, helping to bridge the gap between climate ambitions and results. We are calling for submissions with a unique focus on research and innovation across the conference themes, inspired by the Global Research Action Agenda.
