Daring Cities is a virtual, global forum on climate change for urban leaders tackling the climate emergency.

Daring Cities is designed to empower urban decision-makers – such as mayors, city councillors, administrators, and urban thought leaders, as well as national government representatives, researchers, technical staff, business leaders, civil society decision-makers and community organizers – to lead in the climate emergency.

Daring Cities 2021 will build upon the success of last year’s premiere edition, which was the largest online gathering of the urban community on the climate emergency to date.

Over 4500 attendees engaged in Daring Cities 2020 over the course of the three-week long virtual forum, which featured around 100 virtual offerings and 500 speakers, including the UN Secretary General, 8 Ministers, 7 UN Agency chiefs, and more than 150 Mayors, Governors, Councillors and other urban leaders.
