The global network of local and regional governments works “through peer exchange, partnerships and capacity building to create systemic change for urban sustainability”. It shapes “policy and sparks action to transform urban environments worldwide”; building “connections across levels of government, sectors and stakeholder groups, sparking city-to-city, city-to-region, local-to-global and local-to-national connections.
