Can sustainability and justice go hand in hand?

October 20 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CEST

In a sustainable and just city, the economic, political and social choices which created unsustainable and unjust structures are put under the microscope. Participate in our webinar to learn more about challenges related to the tension between social justice and ecological sustainability. We will share practical examples and resources on how to actually start thinking and building cities that are both sustainable and just.

Who is this event for?

This event is organized by UrbanA and ICLEI for city-makers across Europe and beyond. By city-makers we mean civil society organization representatives, local governments administrators, decision-makers, activists, researchers, citizens and practitioners. Anyone who has an interest or passion in sustainable and just cities.
