Venice City Solutions 2030 5th edition
Online 28 and 29 November 2022
This fifth edition develops the idea that we need to “Flip the Script” to achieve the SDGs. We need more inclusive, peaceful and sustainable cities and territories, and we need them now. After the 2 years pandemic and subsequent global turmoil, certain traditional government models are no longer working, and we need new ones. That is why the organizers are asking local and regional governments to “Flip The Script”: to bring communities together and transform policy and local action to make our cities more inclusive, green, healthy and fair. The SDG are also helping cities to innovate and transform, and we know that this is never an easy process. Venice wants to share specific solutions that other cities and their partners are already experimenting. Each year, we gather in Venice to share how cities are getting inspired by the SDGs, turning around old ways of doing things, and engaging citizens into renewed local action.
This year, we want to find responses to some of the following questions:
- What is your city doing to “flip the script”?
- How is SDGs inspiring your local action?
- How are cities bringing along their communities and partners?
- Is Agenda 2030 helping cities to innovate? How and where?
