Sustainable Solutions For An Urban Future
The ICLEI World Congress 2015 is the biggest forum discussing the development of urban sustainability in 2015 worldwide. The congress welcomed over 2,500 participants from over 75 countries. There were over 37 sessions, and 10 MoUs signed by ICLEI during the Congress. It has offered ICLEI members and delegates the chance to highlight their achievements, to connect with partners, and to learn from each other. It has also served as a landmark occasion for local sustainability efforts in the run-up to the crucial climate negotiations in Paris in December 2015, and has raised the ambitions of the post-2015 development agenda through the globalization of transformative local sustainability actions.
The Seoul Declaration was adopted at the ICLEI World Congress 2015. It is a major statement by ICLEI Members, partners and associates regarding the requirements for climate action and the commitments that local governments are making.
