XIV UBC General Conference in Växjö

‘Leadership for the future – Cities as Leaders for Glocal Sustainable Development’ is the topic of the Conference that will be held in Växjö- Sweden– on 24-27th October 2017. The event will take place to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of UBC – Union of the Baltic Cities,  in the, not by chance, ‘Greenest City in Europe’.

The aim of this conference is to discuss on climate change, growth, jobs, integration and security, common issues that cities have to face nowadays. The theme of leadership will prevail in the conference, with the sharing of pioneering experiences that aim at ensuring a sustainable development model. In this frame, active citizenship stays at the bottom in the construction of a city network in Northern Europe, as a platform for cooperation and exchange.

As part of the Växjö programme, the statutory General Assembly of the UBC will take place on 26th October 2017 and it will be open to all.

The registration to the event will be available from 15th May on this page.
