World Urban Campaign UPDATES : MAY - JUNE 2021

What's happened ?!

Climate Action Urban Thinkers Campus

The Steering Committee members further requested UN-Habitat to extend the 4th call for proposals to host more campuses worldwide. The new deadline is 30 June 2021, 23:59 Central European Time. Host organizations have committed to clearly focus on climate action, the theme selected for 2021 to amplify commitments by stakeholders towards the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) to be held in Glasgow.


This year, 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.)

WUC Partners are invited to submit their City Changers


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