OECD Champion Mayors Week

25 - 28 May 2021, 17:00 - 15:00
- Online

Join ICLEI Europe Member Cities Braga (Portugal), Glasgow (UK) and Mannheim (Germany) at the OECD Champion Mayors Week to discuss how to “build back better” from COVID-19.

The 5th Meeting of the OECD Champion Mayors will focus on the theme: Inclusive Growth, Recovery and Resilience in the COVID-19 era. Champion Mayors will share ideas on harnessing digitalisation and smart city strategies for more inclusive growth, using SDGs to guide long-term recovery strategies, and how to support disproportionately affected groups, such as young people during and beyond the pandemic. Champion Mayors will endorse a new political outcome document and a 5th anniversary document showcasing the evolution of inclusive growth in Champion Mayor cities will be launched.

Since 2021 is the 5th anniversary of the launch of the OECD Champion Mayors for Inclusive Growth initiative, we will celebrate by hosting Champion Mayors Week (25 – 28 May), a series of three virtual Mayor panel events featuring world city leaders sharing ideas and lessons learned regarding our shared mission of ensuring inclusive economic growth.

City leaders interested in the initiative can find more information on how to join Champion Mayors here.
