WUC going green in 2021! and NEW UTC call for proposal deadline 15 Jan 2021

As a follow-up to the first WUC Steering Committee meeting held last week, we are pleased to inform you of the following decisions made:
 

2021 Theme: Climate Action

WUC will go ‘Green’ in 2021 and orient all activities and communication around climate action. Climate action should be geared to building the resilience of cities and communities. The campaign should build upon the notion of resilience and the lessons learned from the Covid-19 crisis. 2021 being the starting year of the implementation of the Paris Agreement, the Climate Summit to be held in Glasgow (1-12 Nov 2021) will be critical.
 

2021 Urban Thinkers Campus

All UTCs in 2021 should focus on climate action to accelerate the implementation of the SDGs under the UN Decade of Action. PLEASE JOIN THE CALL FOR PROPOSALS from today.
 
The deadline for this new call is 15 January 2021. The new Climate Action UTCs will start from 1 February and end on 30 November 2021.
 
TO APPLY, PLEASE CONSULT THE NEW UTC GUIDE AND APPLY HERE.
 
2021 is likely to be a promising year ahead! 
The Secretariat would like to thank you in advance for your engagement and support to make this new year a success.
 
Kind regards,
The WUC Secretariat
