There is an urgency for action at local level for the UN 2030 Agenda. 2030 is not so far away and URBACT new network on localising the UN Sustainable Development Goals will play an important role in accelerating the process. Over almost a 2-year period, the URBACT programme, in partnership with CEMR, is supporting 19 cities of different sizes to learn from each other to reach the development goals for sustainable cities.

The main objective of the network is for the pilot cities to exchange with each other and with other European and International peers, build capacities towards the localisation process of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in their territories, and develop tools for localising the SDGs. The network also aims to strengthen synergies between URBACT, CEMR, EU & international organisations in pursuit of the same goals.
In this event we will be presenting the results of the URBACT SDG Localization network (SDGs in Cities).

Smart Cities through Smart Clustering develops a relationship model between clusters related to aspects of the Smart City paradigm and establishes the bases of a collaborative network that includes some of the most relevant ecosystems of the Smart City model: Mobility, Energy, Environment and ICT.
A network to promote long-term, cross-sectoral, cross-geographic initiatives capable of generating a clear impact in the different involved territories through the collaboration of their productive fabric and the transmission of knowledge and generation of new value chains.

It is a challenge with a necessary precondition: the search for excellence in the management of the clusters involved and a process of mutual knowledge, the sharing of best practices and the establishment of a trusting environment that accompanies these actions and a joint strategy.
