Partnering up for sustainable and just cities: Local governments and community-led initiatives

How might community-led initiatives (CLIs) and local governments benefit from partnering up? We interviewed each of the UrbanCommunity project’s nine Urban Experimenters, and hosted a workshop for city representatives and CLIs to brainstorm benefits, challenges, and examples of good CLI-local government partnerships.

We found that when it comes to making cities more ecologically sustainable and socially just, local governments and CLIs are better together. Read more in the four-page brochure below.

There are many challenges to CLI-local government partnerships, and not all CLIs will be able to partner with a local government, or generate benefits from such a partnership. However, in many cases these partnerships can greatly amplify impact! The climate emergency is urgent, so let’s pursue partnerships wherever we can.
