World Urban Campaign UPDATES : MARCH - APRIL 2021

What's happened ?!

NEW WUC WEBSITE

The new WUC website provides a fresh look and a simpler, more attractive content for the users and new comers. Please note that ‘I’m a City Changer’ has been revived to better give a voice to everyone and allow individuals to participate. The Urban Thinkers Campus is also more visible and will help access events in a more user-friendly manner.

WUC CALL TO CLIMATE ACTION

Recognizing that Climate Change is one of the planet’s greatest challenges, the World Urban campaign is calling to climate action to vigorously address the destruction of ecosystems and the threat to undo decades of development gains. Without transformational action, climate emergencies will become increasingly severe, have declared the 160 partner organizations of the World Urban Campaign (WUC). Reiterating the disastrous effects of climate disasters that impact nearly 200 million people every year, particularly severe on the urban poor, the WUC calls for urgent climate action and invite organizations to join their plea in recognizing the global climate emergency and proposing key actions and principles to deliver The City We Need.

SHARE YOUR CLIMATE ACTION SOLUTIONS

On 15 April 2021, UN-Habitat launched the #ClimateAction4Cities Campaign, a dedicated action campaign to engage more broadly, mobilize multiple actors, and promote climate solutions in cities and communities. Climate action solutions will be promoted on social media channels, shared in various platforms, and inform discussions with researchers and policy-makers at the Innovate4Cities Conference (co-hosted by UN-Habitat on 11-15 October 2021).

CONTRIBUTE TO THE 24-HOUR CITY CHANGERS CAFÉ

The World Urban Campaign is organizing a 24-Hour City Changer Café, a Facebook live event over 24 hours on 25-26 May 2021, to exchange on urban solutions. The City Changer Café is a space to present your climate action and solutions. WUC Partners and their networks will be invited globally by email and on social medias to ‘Grap a cup of coffee and meet city changers worldwide, day and night’ in the first City Changer Café on 25 to 26 May. It will be an opportunity to engage with the public and to promote your solutions globally, in English, French or Spanish. Would your organization be interested in taking an active role in the “24-hours City Changer Café”, by discussing your urban solutions live (a 45 min slot will be allocated to interested organizations).

NOMINATE YOUR CITY CHANGERS

In 2021, the World Urban Campaign will recognize ‘City Changers’ individuals for their outstanding contribution to address the challenges of climate change in order to achieve “The City We Need”. As ‘City Changers’, individuals will be promoted on the WUC Website and the WUC social media channels. They will participate in WUC Events (Urban Thinkers Campus, City Changers Cafés, etc.)

PLEASE NOMINATE YOUR INDIVIDUAL “CITY CHANGERS” BEFORE 30 APRIL
