How U.S. Local Governments Contribute to Global Processes: Past, Present, and Future

September 2020 marks the 30 years since a group of emboldened mayors asserted the local contribution to global sustainability in what would come to be called the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, the founding of ICLEI. Today, the advocacy on behalf of cities, towns, and regions continues around climate, biodiversity, health and equity action — with important opportunities for U.S. local governments over the coming year. Join NYC Senior Climate Policy Advisor Dan Zarrilli, California State Senator Nancy Skinner, an original architect of the ICLEI Charter and local-to-global champion, alongside researcher Ben Leffel and ICLEI Director of Global Policy Yunus Arikan for a look into how U.S. cities counties continue to assert their leadership: past, present, and future.
