Inclusive cities and communities

Thematic overview

Climate action is only successful when it involves social inclusion and citizen engagement. The ICLEI World Congress 2018 will highlight successful approaches of managing urban cultural diversity, social integration and gender equality in the contexts of rapidly changing societies.

Held in Canada, the ICLEI World Congress 2018 will also stress the importance of working with First Nations communities and governments to ensure their needs and aspirations are fully realized within cities and regions.

The ICLEI World Congress 2018 will also be a call to action for local governments to work towards urban inclusion and reconciliation as part of achieving sustainable development.
