After a first call for proposals held at the end of 2020, the World Urban Campaign (WUC) Steering Committee members approved the first seven applications to host Climate Action oriented Urban Thinkers Campus (UTC) for 2021. Host organizations have committed to clearly focus on climate action, the theme selected for 2021 to amplify commitments by stakeholders towards the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) to be held in Glasgow from 1 to 12 November 2021. Organizing and co-organizing partners engaged include the following: 

The Steering Committee members further requested UN-Habitat to issue a 2nd call for proposals to host more campuses worldwide. The new deadline is 28 February 2021, 23:59 Central European Time. Other calls will be held during the year to allow more entries by interested partner organizations.

The application form and a Guide to Urban Thinkers Campuses are available on the WUC website on the dedicated UTC page.
