The 8th European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns will focus on the pressing need for action by local governments to change unsustainable pathways and shape Europe's future. Following the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement adopted by 195 countries at the Climate Conference of the Parties (COP 21), this conference will be the flagship event in Europe in 2016 for discussion and experience exchange on urban sustainability.
The conference is hosted by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, the Basque Government, Bizkaia County Council and Bilbao City Council, with the involvement of Udalsarea 21 - Basque Network of Municipalities for Sustainability, and the support of Araba County Council, Gipuzkoa County Council, Donostia/San Sebastián City Council and Vitoria-Gasteiz City Council.
