Innovate4Cities (I4C) 2021 Conference

The Innovate4Cities (I4C) Conference, at the nexus of cities, climate change science and innovation, is now open for registration !


Co-hosted by UN-Habitat and the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (GCoM), this ground-breaking event will bring together over 1,000 city leaders, scientists, researchers, innovators, academics, youth, and business people to advance pragmatic and action-oriented research and science that will help cities reduce their carbon footprint and increase resilience to climate change.

The event follows the recent publication of the alarming report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which warned that human-induced climate change is already causing weather and climate extremes across the globe.

Deliberations from the virtual I4C Conference will also feed into the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP 26) which will be held in Glasgow, Scotland, from 31 October and World Cities Day on the same date.
