Daring Cities 2023 will harness the strengths of both in-person and virtual engagement to create an initiative that is able to engage globally and further the exchange of knowledge, build capacity, and elevate the voices of diverse stakeholders to accelerate multilevel action on the climate emergency.
In June 2023 parallel to the UNFCCC Bonn Talks, ICLEI and the City of Bonn will bring select local and regional government leaders at the forefront of just and equitable climate emergency response together with national government representatives and other key stakeholders present at the Bonn Talks.
This unique opportunity will provide participants with the chance to revitalize partnerships and discuss how to effectively collaborate and deliver on a multilevel climate emergency response that is both just and equitable.
These in person dialogues will bring new life to Daring Cities in a post-pandemic world, taking advantage of this moment to connect face to face, and inspire the virtual forum which follows leading up to COP28.
From July to September, connect with fellow leaders, practitioners, researchers, and experts on our virtual journey to tackle the multi-faceted challenges of a just and equitable climate emergency response.
Continuing on from the Daring Cities 2023 Dialogues, the Virtual Forum will provide a free, globally accessible program of solution-oriented sessions on regionally and sectorally relevant issues related to just transition and the climate emergency.
The outcomes of the forum will elevate the message from the Daring Cities 2023 dialogues and together will become the platform for dissemination in Cornerstone II: Disseminate and into Cornerstone III: Advocate at COP28 in Dubai.
