About the event
ICLEI World Congress is a platform to highlight how local and regional governments, and ICLEI as a global network, are advancing the global climate and sustainability agenda. The event brings together primarily mayors, representatives of local, regional and national governments, as well as local and international organizations including UN agencies, businesses, academia, civil society, and other stakeholders from the international and multidisciplinary community.
On 11-13 May 2022 we will gather at the ICLEI World Congress 2021 - 2022: The Malmö Summit to exchange with and inspire one another on the best practices in local sustainable development, and learn firsthand from the City of Malmö’s wealth of sustainability initiatives. Malmö is a leading example of creative and innovative sustainable development.
The event will have three days of core programming for participants, featuring strategic high-level dialogues building on themes explored in 2021, as well as exciting technical visits, in-depth workshops and multiple networking opportunities especially suited for in-person participation.
The Malmö Commitment, which will invite local and regional governments to advance equitable sustainable development, also will be launched.

About the City of Malmö:
An ICLEI Member since 1996, the City of Malmö is a climate-smart knowledge city, listed as the fourth most innovative in the world by OECD. Malmö is working actively for sustainability initiatives and is the first city in Sweden that has publicly announced the commitment to implement the UN SDG’s.
With around 350,000 inhabitants, Malmö might be small in size, but big in ambition. The city has adopted a unique approach to sustainability, with environmental, financial and social effects all forming part of the equation.
