Our ICLEI commitment: Building sustainable cities, towns, regions and an urban world for all
The ICLEI Malmö Commitment and Strategic Vision is our pledge to make sustainable development the only model for development in the urban 21st century. Our joint programs, projects, initiatives, research, capacity building and advocacy in ICLEI drive worldwide action towards sustainability.At the ICLEI World Congress 2018 in Montréal, local and regional leaders across the ICLEI network released the ICLEI Montréal Commitment and Strategic Vision. Three years later, at the Virtual Launch of the ICLEI World Congress 2021 - 2022, hosted by Malmö, Sweden, the network refined and recommitted to this vision, The ICLEI Malmö Commitment And Strategic Vision 2021 - 2027.
Five critical, strategic and interlinked pathways serve as a compass to shape and manage our actions in a rapidly changing world and to transform our cities, towns and regions. These five pathways - low emission development, nature-based development, circular development, resilient development and equitable and people-centered development - serve as the basis of our sustainable urban development.
