Applications open to join urban sustainability and justice project

All those who are passionate about urban sustainability and justice are invited to apply to join the Urban Arenas for Sustainable and Just Cities (UrbanA) project as a Fellow or event participant.

The UrbanA project, for which ICLEI Europe is a partner, is working to build more sustainable and just cities. Part of this effort is convening four “arena events” taking place in ICLEI Members Rotterdam (The Netherlands), Barcelona (Spain), Berlin (Germany), and Brussels (Belgium) between November 2019 and October 2021.

UrbanA Fellows will contribute at each of the four arena events. They will share their knowledge and report on their involvement through contributions such as blog posts. In return, Fellows will be part of the UrbanA Community of Practice, and will be offered a place in the programme, social media promotion, and reimbursement of travel costs (up to €350 per event).

Applications are also open for participants in the first arena event, taking place in Rotterdam on 28-29 November 2019. That event will be focused around the theme, “Mapping approaches to urban sustainability and justice.”
