Call for Expression of Interest: The City We Need Now!

Updated: Nov 30, 2021



Be an active partner in regional action campaigns


On 1 December 2021, the World Urban Campaign (WUC) will launch The City We Need Now! an action campaign on the lead to the 11th Session of the World Urban Forum - WUF 11 ‘Transforming our Cities for a Better Urban Future’.


We are off-track to achieve the SDGs by 2030

We cannot loose time any longer. We need to take action now!

The City We Need Now! campaign will raise awareness on the role of cities and communities as accelerators to achieve the New Urban Agenda and the SDGs towards a better urban future. ‘We cannot loose time any longer. We need to take action now!’ is the motto of the campaign partners. For the WUC partners it is imperative to join hands in cities and communities to accelerate action through catalytic partnerships and by promoting the best solutions to the current challenges.


Campaigns to raise awareness on cities and communities as accelerators

It is expected that WUC partners will also launch REGIONAL ACTION CAMPAIGNS to better engage from the ground and contextualise actions and solutions. These campaigns will help mobilise organizations towards WUF11 through action days, City Changers events, as well as on social media to spread key messages and solutions. A first round of regional consultations was held with the WUC partners on Wednesday 24 November to seek commitments by partner organizations and start gathering interest on campaign activities by regions and sub-regions in 2022. As a follow-up it was decided to open for expressions of interest in order to include more organizations willing to join.


We are inviting all WUC Partners

Please summit your expression of interest for participating in one of the regional campaigns at a strategic level to address key action areas as defined in The City We Need Now! to better achieve the New Urban Agenda et the SDGs by 2030.


Regional consultation meetings will be held on 15 December 2021 to bring together more organizations that have expressed their interest in the regional campaigns.


The deadline for expressions of interest is 13 December 2021 midnight (GMT).
