Description

The Geneva Cities Hub is proud to partner with UNECE and UN-Habitat for the 2022 Forum of Mayors

 

The 2nd Forum of Mayors will take place on 4-5 April 2022 in Geneva. It will be held back-to-back with the Regional Forum on Sustainable Development (RFSD) to link local and national action in support of the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals. The thematic focus will be aligned with the High-Level Political Forum and the RFSD.

The event will provide a platform for exchange and mutual learning where Mayors from the UNECE region will present their efforts to tackle challenges in their cities. Cities will learn from each other’s best practices in the areas of housing and climate-neutral buildings, green cities and nature-based solutions, sustainable urban transport and safer roads, as well as smart urban development solutions.”

Follow-up to the 1st Forum of Mayors

 

The 1st edition of the Forum of Mayors was held in 2020. It culminated in the adoption of the Geneva Declaration of Mayors, under which Mayors undertook to, inter alia:

  • Strengthen the resilience of our cities
  • Take ambitious climate action
  • Make our cities greener
  • Accelerate the transition to sustainable energy
  • Ensure urban transport is sustainable
  • Ensure housing is affordable, healthy and adequate
  • Make cities more equitable and inclusive

To follow-up on the Declaration, the Geneva Cities Hub created the Mayors’ Action Platform under the auspices of UNECE and UN-Habitat.

Through the platform, Mayors are able to publish their own success stories, read case studies by other municipalities, and get directly in touch with other city representatives via the integrated chat of the platform.
