The IUC team participated in today’s regional exchange on the green recovery organised by the GCoM Secretariat. The event was opened by Gregor Robertson (Mayor of Vancouver and GCoM Global Ambassador) and included presentations by the City of Seoul, the Cities Climate Leadership Alliance, and the GCoM communications experts.
While cities have been among the hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, they will be essential economic engines for restarting recovery ambitions. As national governments navigate the regional complexities of responding to and recovering from COVID-19, countries and cities must jointly seize this opportunity to build back a cleaner, more resilient, sustainable, and fairer world for everyone. This call provided an opportunity to know more about the GCoM partnerships around green recovery as well as upcoming opportunities to engage at the regional level.
