Every year over 400 participants from cities (local governments), international organizations, NGOs, business and academia join ICLEI Resilient Cities Congress for a discussion on topical issues in urban resilience and adaptation to climate change. This special 10th anniversary edition of the Congress will feature a spacious and luminous open exhibition area for participants to mingle and network in between sessions and during coffee breaks.
A co-creative participatory session introducing the ICLEI Young Writers Network.
The Katowice Climate Change Conference will include the 24th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 24) to the UNFCCC, the 14th session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP) and the third part of the first session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA 1-3).
Every three years, ICLEI holds its World Congress to showcase how local and regional governments across our network are advancing sustainable urban development worldwide. The ICLEI World Congress connects them with their peers and strategic partners, and provides a platform for discussions that will inform and enhance their work.
