INNOVATE4CITIES Global Marketplace 2023

The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy (GCoM) invites cities and local governments, academics, businesses, individuals to the first of its kind Innovate4Cities (I4C) Global Marketplace.

Format for the Marketplace: There will be sessions in suitable hours for all timezones across the three days, with meetings and presentation opportunities open to all who are interested. We will be in touch to discuss options to actively participate in the marketplace - to present or pitch your ideas for research and innovation, relevant to your local climate action needs. Importantly, this isn’t like a normal conference. 

You can attend one day, half a day or just a specific meeting - with a program focussed on a few high level stock-take plenaries on research and innovation for cities and local government climate action; and many small to medium meetings to generate meaningful partnerships for research and innovation to close the implementation gap on local climate ambition. 

Building on research and innovation priorities identified via key city & climate change science agendas, the Innovate4Cities Global Marketplace is a shared space to connect and match cities, local governments, funders and financiers, academia, and other levels of government to tackle the policy, research, and innovation gaps most critical to urban action. 

The I4C Global Marketplace will provide a virtual space to identify, explore, and connect the challenges, knowledge, and solutions focused on tackling the climate crisis through action implementation in cities and local governments. The Marketplace aims to catalyze regionally relevant partnerships that maximize shared priorities and ambitions to to implement need-based city climate actions and solutions that deliver a net-zero, climate-resilient and safe future.
