  • When and where is ICLEI World Congress 2021 - 2022 taking place?

    ICLEI’s triennial gathering will now have many opportunities to connect!

    On 13-15 April 2021, we will connect virtually for high-level discussions on how local and regional governments can continue to advance on sustainable development together with ICLEI.

    Throughout the rest of 2021, we will explore critical topics in sustainable urban development in a Webinar Series: The Road to Malmö, building our momentum to 2022. We will then gather in person in Malmö, Sweden, for the Malmö Summit, on 11-13 May 2022 – as far as the global health crisis permits – to exchange with and inspire one another on the best practices in local sustainable development, and learn firsthand from the City of Malmö’s wealth of sustainability initiatives.
