ALLIANCE EVENTS AND NETWORK MEETINGS
A key element of the Urban Transitions Alliance are strong working relationships between city practitioners and experts. These are fostered through a diversity of opportunities for in person meetings of Alliance members and partners.
World Urban Forum 11
Designing equitable sustainability programs: Local tools for a fair and inclusive transition
Thursday, 30 June 2022 | 9:00-11:00 CEST
To support fair and inclusive transitions, ICLEI collaborated with cities from different world regions under the Urban Transitions Alliance to create a methodology that allows to map the social equity outcomes of local plans across three dimensions: access, participation and opportunity. For each dimension, tools and recommendations for action were identified, as well as indicators to monitor progress and best practices from cities of the ICLEI network to learn from. An initial version of this methodology was tested with the City of Turku as part of the Circular Turku project.
These learnings have been compiled into a guidebook which was published during the World Urban Forum. This training offered a run through of the methodologies included in this guidebook.
