Reshaping cities towards sustainability is an urgent response to climate change, urging our societies to accelerate the green transition. That means redesigning production systems, promoting the circular economy, and rethinking the use of resources in cities, among others. Yet, we are currently far from ensuring a sustainable planet for future generations, so how can the action needed to deliver climate-positive impact be accelerated? Local authorities are the best placed to take action and to meet the Sustainable Development Goals. This session is designed to analyze and showcase how experts and cities are ensuring a sustainable urban development, exploring how cities are already lowering emissions, sharing their learnt-lessons, and collaborating with the private sector, civil society, academia and regional governments to achieve ambitious climate targets.
