Congress of European Municipalities and Regions 2020

Please notice the following information issued by the organising institution: 

“Unfortunately we must inform you that as a result of a careful evaluation of the health situation caused by Sars-CoV-2 (“Coronavirus”), the City of Innsbruck together with the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) have decided with great regret to cancel the CEMR2020.

A postponement of the congress to an alternative date is currently being examined. You will in this case be informed accordingly.

Information on re-processing (reimbursement of congress fees etc.) will go directly to those concerned.

We thank you very much for your understanding.”

Ten years ahead of the SDGs global deadline, the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) invites you to its congress with the motto: “Local action. Global shift. Living the Sustainable Development Goals.”

The CEMR2020 congress brings together the whole SDG family in one place: mayors, local and regional leaders from across Europe, as well as other passionate people who drive change towards a more sustainable future in every city, town and region. Through masterclasses, TED-style talks and interactive sessions, get a hands-on experience on how to design tailor-made strategies to reach the global goals. Engage in small group discussion on how to finance sustainable development or adapt to the impacts of climate change. Exchange with mayors on how the SDGs transformed their cities. Explore how decentralised cooperation can be upgraded through the SDGs.

Experts will also offer you invaluable insights and proven strategies on how to master monitoring and make sure you are on the right track for 2030. Aditionally, numerous off-site sessions and walks through the enchanting streets of Innsbruck will be organised, including on mobility and public transport, energy efficiency, water management, sustainable housing, sport and recreation space.
