ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability and the Federal City of Bonn, Germany has launched Daring Cities 2023 with the theme: A just and equitable climate emergency response.
Now on its fourth year, Daring Cities is an action-oriented initiative to recognize and empower courageous urban leaders—including mayors and other decision-makers, technical staff, researchers, private sector representatives, and community organizers—to disrupt business-as-usual and shift towards business-as-possible. Daring Cities showcases and catalyzes exemplary local climate action to tackle the climate emergency, including ambitious resilience-building and climate mitigation efforts. More information about Daring Cities is available via https://daringcities.org/.
As part of this year’s Daring Cities, ICLEI Southeast Asia is organizing a one-hour virtual forum session to be conducted on 22 August 2023 (2:00 PM GMT +7 / 3:00 PM GMT +8 *TBC) via Zoom. The virtual session will tackle stakeholder-driven adaptation and resilience initiatives being done by local governments around SEA. It seeks to highlight the importance of a bottom-up approach as an effective way of building resilience and adapting to climate change.
