Events with purpose
Designing events for ICLEI’s vision
ICLEI’s Global Events team designs spaces where attendees can disconnect from their day-to-day work and focus on interactive knowledge exchange and forging new connections and partnerships. For many Members, our events provide a rare opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who face similar challenges in advancing sustainability. By bringing together local and regional representatives from around the world to exchange knowledge and establish valuable connections, we create a sense of community that helps advance collective commitments and meaningful action toward achieving local sustainability worldwide.
Our events strive to go beyond traditional presentations by providing participants with the opportunity to learn new approaches to sustainability first hand. Many ICLEI events incorporate site visits or other on-site learning experiences where participants can see sustainability practice in situ and be inspired to adapt them to the needs of their own communities.
Finally, we strategically position our events to showcase ICLEI’s work and provide a comprehensive overview of what we do. We support and enhance the work of the ICLEI Network by leveraging events to establish new partnerships, and ensure our existing partnerships continue to grow and thrive.
