Cities within and across national borders are learning with and from each other on a wide range of topics for different purposes and in varying ways. In this webinar series, urban professionals and city representatives will discuss city-to-city learning – or cities learning with and from each other. The webinar is organized in collaboration with UN-Habitat, Vital Cities and Citizens (VCC), Closer Cities, and Justra Cities Network

More about the webinar 

The first part of the webinar series will take place on 16 April, 14:00-15:30 CET, and is specifically designed for city representatives

The panelists will briefly introduce city-to-city learning on climate change policies. After that, city representatives who are or have engaged in city-to-city learning on innovative climate change policies, such as nature-based solutions, will share their experiences. Specifically, they will discuss under which conditions do engagement in city-to-city learning takes place and what are the outcomes of these at the individual and organizational levels – and even beyond.
