DetailsDaring Cities is the global virtual forum for urban leaders boldly tackling the climate emergency, especially in light of COVID-19.
Climate science shows we must make deep, civilization-wide changes by 2030 to limit a planetary catastrophe. This is a matter of survival, particularly for the most vulnerable, but increasingly for every place and population on earth.
Cities, towns and regions are undertaking ambitious and urgent local climate action to help tackle the climate emergency. But they cannot do it alone.
That’s why, between 4 and 8 October, bold city leaders, practitioners, researchers, and experts will meet on our virtual journey on radical actions to tackle the climate emergency and to create a vision of what we want our cities, towns and regions to look like by 2030.
What to expect at Daring Cities 2021:
– Five jam-packed days: 4-8 October 2021
– Thought-provoking speakers
– Hands-on training
– Opportunities for networking and exchange
– Free participation, thanks to our generous partners

Created by ICLEI and the Federal City of Bonn, Daring Cities is a virtual, action-oriented forum to recognize and empower courageous urban leaders – including mayors and other decision-makers, technical staff, researchers, private sector representatives, and community organizers – to disrupt business-as-usual and shift towards business-as-possible. Daring Cities showcases and catalyzes exemplary local climate action to tackle the climate emergency, including ambitious resilience-building and climate mitigation efforts.
Daring Cities is supported by major contributions from the Federal City of Bonn, the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), the Foundation for International Dialogue of the Savings Bank in Bonn, the Ministry of the Environment of the Government of Japan, and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) of Germany.
