The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy (GCoM), through its regional lead ICLEI Oceania has partnered with Canberra Urban & Regional Futures (CURF) at the University of Canberra to convene a Roundtable to explore how national and state governments, academia, business, NGOs, institutes and agencies can support Australian cities and local governments through the Global Covenant of Mayors program.
CURF Director Professor Barbara Norman and GCoM Oceania Regional Director Mr Bernie Cotter have invited key advocates and influencers in a national climate challenge to attend a Roundtable to be held on Wednesday 27 March 2019 at the University of Canberra.
The aim of the Roundtable will be to kick-start the framing of a national pathway for climate change action that recognises city and local effort. Roundtable discussions will explore the benefits of national support and recognition, synergies with existing programs and activities, and opportunities for partnership and support. In this way the collective effort from Australian cities and communities can be better recognised. In addition to these discussions, the Roundtable will include short presentations from leading climate change advocates and proponents of transformative climate change action in local and regional jurisdictions.
This event is by invitation only.
