Announcing the Launch of the 3rd CITYNET-UNESCAP SDG City Awards!

Greetings to all changemakers in CityNet member cities. The time has come to formally announce that the 3rd SDG City Awards Program has been launched. The SDG City Awards is a joint program between CityNet and UN ESCAP, who have partnered since 2017 with the support of Seoul Metropolitan Government to operate the Urban SDG Knowledge Platform, a database of innovative urban case studies. The SDG City Awards acts as a mechanism to encourage CityNet members and others to contribute new cases to the platform to support its mission to foster regional knowledge sharing of ground-breaking sustainable urban practices. The awards also recognize the work being done at the local government level to achieve sustainable development in the region.
