Help

A conference is a collection of meetings arranged in a programme, with a number of people invited as speakers, and other information fields typical of large congresses or social events (registration, list of organisations that support or sponsor the event, etc.).

Examples: A conference can be a relevant event for an organization and its members, or take place as part of a participatory process or follow a consultation.

Introduction

Mayors, administrators, researchers, young change-makers and other local innovators from across Europe and beyond will explore how to tackle the climate emergency and the loss of biodiversity at a local level.

Details

The climate emergency and the loss of biodiversity stand as humankind's most critical challenges. These problems literally hit close to home, affecting local communities directly. However, it is within our communities that we possess the best tools to address them. Municipalities serve as a driving force behind innovation, capable of identifying people’s needs, experimenting with solutions, and responding swiftly to unexpected developments. It is at the local level that participatory innovation flourishes, showcasing to citizens how sustainable, tangible change can profoundly improve all of our lives. Also, the inherent link between democracy and climate action is most visible here.

A diverse cohort of up to 300 participants, including mayors, local municipal representatives, best-practice experts, researchers, young change-makers and other local innovators, will come together for an enriching and impactful exchange. They will glean valuable insights from the groundbreaking ideas generated in and around Barcelona, while also sharing their own knowledge and expertise in return.
