AN EFFECTIVE CITY-TO-CITY COOPERATION PROGRAM TO ACHIEVE THE WIDER OBJECTIVES OF THE URBAN AGENDAS

Metropolis Urban Innovation is a joint program led by city of Guangzhou, and it works under the banner of the Guangzhou International Award for Urban Innovation (Guangzhou Award) and its Urban Innovation institute (UII):  a platform where we have over 600 applied urban innovation practices and projects from around the world.

 

Guangzhou, together with its founding partners Metropolis, UCLG, ICLEI and with its local institutions, including universities, works at identifying the key urban contributions, and the cities and regions where such practices and programmes could be implemented for the benefit of local communities.

Guangzhou’s example demonstrates that the immense infrastructure needs of cities could be addressed, implemented and managed through effective city-to-city cooperation and collaboration.

 

Metropolis Urban Innovation is one of the main focus areas of Metropolis´ future vision towards the global objectives of New Urban Agenda (NUA) and multilateral goals of 2030 Sustainable Development (2030 SDGs).
