Urban transitions empower cities with an industrial legacy to define their own paths towards more vibrant and sustainable economies, improving their local environments and the lives of residents.
The Urban Transitions Alliance, an initiative led by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, presents an opportunity for industrial and former industrial cities across the world to become global leaders in sustainable urban development.
The Alliance supports cities to identify common challenges, share knowledge, co-create solutions and forge strong working relationships with local government peers, research experts and private sector solution providers.
DEFINE SHARED CHALLENGES
Cities are at the center of the Alliance. They will jointly decide to work on three main themes that will be addressed in the trans-disciplinary working groups.
Participating cities will be able to share knowledge through our dedicated online platform. The outcomes will inform the guidance that will be provided to the Alliance.
DEVELOP ACTION PLANS
The results of each working group’s efforts will be condensed into briefing sheets and solution roadmaps to be shared with all the cities and partners in the Alliance.
