The program

The Daring Cities 2020 global virtual forum will be a three-week event comprising of high level and visionary speakers, a series of informative workshops and personal networking opportunities in a variety of virtual formats to accommodate different topics, time zones, internet bandwidth limits, and languages. The event will help to set the course to COP26, Daring Cities 2021 and beyond.

Daring Cities 2020 will be structured in three parts:

  1. Know: Presenting the most cutting-edge research and information on climate change and its impact on cities, including health. These discussions will further support the IPCC Cities Research Agenda and the IPBES process.
  2. Act: Showcasing exemplary local climate action from around the world in addressing the climate emergency, from adaptive and resilience-building measures to climate change mitigation efforts.
  3. Lead: Facilitating action-oriented discussions with key global partners, including the UNFCCC and COP Presidencies, on delivering the Paris Agreement through collaborative, multilevel action, while highlighting implementation and finance.
