ONE DAY PROGRAM
FOR CITIES AND REGIONS
Cities and Regions send us their local sustainability issues and from there we create a dedicated program to present to Mayors and other Representatives innovative and relevant solutions to solve their local issues.
→ Come and share what your city and region is implementing
→ Connect with entrepreneurs working on sustainable territories
→ Get inspired by other cities and regions
→ Get on track with your local objectives
Workshops between City Representatives, leading Innovators and relevant international organizations
On 2018, Marieke van Doorninck, Deputy Major of Amsterdam, and Alexandre Guilly, from Les Alchimistes, met during a Workshop and realized that they could work together to bring a solution to compost food waste in Amsterdam.
Conferences where elected representatives take the floor and share their approach
Filipe Araujo, Vice-President, Vice-mayor and City Councilor from the City of Porto, presented the actions Porto is implementing to lead by example.
Ceremonies, where Cities are on the spotlight and elected representatives share their commitments and achievements.
In 2018, Marieke van Doorninck, Deputy Mayor of Amsterdam, announced the city will reduce their CO2 emissions by 55% by 2030 in the frame of the Covenant of Mayors.
Eusebiu Veteleanu, Vicemayor of Ramnicu Valcea, was working also in an ambitious plan to be presented soon to reduce their emissions as well.
Guided tours at our Hall of Solutions
Every City Representative has the possibility to meet directly with entrepreneurs that address their local issues. During this tour they can imagine what our cities can be like.
One-on-one meetings, bilateral meetings, breakfast, cocktail... specifically organized to boost the cooperation between all actors working to build sustainable cities.
WE ARE NOT HERE TO THINK, WE ARE HERE TO ACT!
The solutions presented to Mayors and City Representatives meet specific criteria. Our partnership with the European Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy is strategic to help develop solutions to our major climate challenges. Cities are home to the majority of the world's population. It is in this environment that the innovative solutions needed for a sustainable world must be developped. ChangeNOW is a place to make it happen!
"Cities have always been at the forefront of change. They have always paved the way for future progress.
That makes them today decisive actors in the ecological and energy transition.
But we can only operate this revolution - political, social, cultural - with the citizens, not just for them."
Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris
