Innovate4Cities: 11-15 October 2021 - call for regional curators

Published at: 13 May 2021

UN-Habitat and the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (GCoM) are hosting the groundbreaking Innovate4Cities 2021 Conference from 11 to 15 October 2021. This is a virtual multi-day global event bringing together science and innovation, policy and practice to enable cities to take accelerated and more ambitious climate action.

The I4C leadership team are seeking regional curator teams comprised of local governments, research institutions and innovation partners to support the delivery of a programme that is diverse, accessible and representative of city scale innovation, knowledge and ambition from all regions of the globe. These regional curators would be working and researching the nexus between science and practice for ambitious delivery of climate goals, to curate program elements that bring regional voices, opportunities, and priority innovation pathways and partnerships to the conference. Each regional team is expected to include at least one research university; perhaps your institutions will be interested in this opportunity? The call for Regional Curators is attached and may be found here: https://unhabitat.org/node/145844.

Closing date for regional curator team expressions of interests has been extended to 28 May 2021.
