“Cities can be cradles for innovation and sustainability transitions. They are places where slow and fast transitions are initiated and accelerated as well as test-beds and seedbeds for innovations. Cities have social, ecological and technological assets that are essential for economic and social development locally and globally; there is thus an imperative for balancing their efforts for continuity and prosperity while ensuring a livable space for their citizens.”
So, who are the Habitat III major players? This is the question posed by CitiScope in their story published recently, and these major players include our SUSTAIN project partners.
ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, one of the Global Taskforce’s partners, is at the forefront of the Habitat III preparation, including engagement in numerous side events.
