The Conference

Let’s scale up solutions!

Following the successful launch in Hanover 2015, the Climate Neighbourhoods (CN) are taking place for the second time on 22nd and 23rd May 2019 in the immediate vicinity of the International Conference on Climate Action - ICCA2019. The CN address ICCA's central question: How can vertical and horizontal cooperation lead to the intensification and dissemination of climate mitigation activities and adaptation to climate change? It will be the objective of the CN to raise awareness on this question among local implementers and decision-makers by looking at tried and tested success stories.

The CN’s motto “Let's scale up solutions!” aims at participants from all over the world. The neighbourhoods take up key thematic areas of the ICCA2019 ranging from low-carbon mobility, climate-friendly urban planning and sustainable consumption, to financing and design of participation and knowledge exchange processes. In these thematic fields the CN will discuss and develop approaches on how to scale-up solutions. An interactive programme with workshops, open-space discussions, exhibitions and creative activities creates the space to develop policy recommendations to be presented to relevant decision-makers at the ICCA.

The ICCA and CN build on the successful event in Hanover 2015, at which ICCA and CN were also jointly organised. Hanover sent important impulses to policymakers, which were included in the international debate at the UN Climate Conference in Paris, amongst others.
