20 - 22 September 2017 in Essen, Germany- Reducing CO2 emissions is not enough. A drastic shift in the way we use resources, shape policy and go about our daily routines is necessary if we are to tackle climate challenge. The transformation we need to see in our regions, cities and towns is not something that just happens – it is a process that we need to make happen. Local governments are central to this task. On a daily basis, they face questions such as how to gain inspiration for the change needed, how to promote integrated and coherent approaches, how to finance these transitions and how to monitor progress.
The 2017 International Climate Alliance Conference will support regions, cities and towns in tackling these challenges. The conference, hosted by the Region of North Rhine Westphalia and the City of Essen, takes place in Europe’s 2017 Green Capital – a 'city in transformation'. Highlighting examples of successful municipal transformations supported by strong partnerships, effective tools, and the right financing, this event will engage participants via workshops, special on site sessions and ample space for exchange and input.
