The ICLEI World Congress 2024, hosted by the City of São Paulo, Brazil, is a pivotal gathering focused on advancing sustainable urban development and equitable adaptation to local and regional challenges. Running from 18 – 21 June, this year’s Congress is a journey of reflection and forward-looking vision, emphasizing the critical challenges and opportunities facing cities, towns, and regions due to rising global risks and changes.

We invite local and regional government representatives, urban practitioners, researchers and stakeholders to join us to exchange with and inspire one another on the best practices in sustainable urban development, brought to life by the City of São Paulo as our 2024 host. Thanks to the generous support of São Paulo, there is no charge for participation. However, please note that space is limited, and securing your spot through pre-registration is required.

Central themes for 2024 include leveraging ICLEI’s strategic pathways for sustainability, understanding the unique role of regions like Amazonia in global biodiversity and sustainability, and exploring the impact of climate and sustainability at all levels of government. Through high-level plenaries led by international luminaries, site visits to special destinations throughout São Paulo, deep dive interactive workshops, memorable networking opportunities, and an expert-led Research & Innovation Symposium, the ICLEI World Congress 2024 is an action-oriented event that will ensure a space for local and regional government representatives to experience the power of reconnecting on sustainability goals.
