On 5 September 2024, the Policy Learning Platform will be hosting a webinar on Sustainability Governance: Strengthening Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at a local level.

There is a striking gap between ambitious high-level sustainability targets and actual implementation at the local level, worldwide and also in European cities. Join us to learn how better sustainability governance at local level can help us progress towards well-governed, sustainable and healthy cities.

Municipalities are naturally interested in sustainability as it has environmental, economic, and social dimensions. They have a unique role in promoting sustainable solutions as they are responsible for the operations, regulations, and resources within a given area and for their communities.

Of course, every municipality has a different and unique context. But there are basic principles of Sustainability Governance, including common solutions, methodologies and actions that can help municipalities reach the Sustainable Development Goals.

With this webinar, we are giving the word to European cities that are already taking strong steps towards the integration of SDGs at local level. You will hear about:

  • Multilevel governance
  • Organisation culture
  • Ways to bridge the silos
  • Inclusion of SDG targets and indicators in local policy
  • Citizen participation
