→ Connect with entrepreneurs working on sustainable territories
→ Get inspired by other cities and regions
→ Get on track with your local objectives
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
CHANGENOW IS A PLACE WHERE CITIES AND REGIONS MEET SOLUTIONS
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 major climate challenges. Cities are home to the majority of the world's population. It is within this environment that the innovative solutions needed for a sustainable world must be developed. ChangeNOW is the 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
