Drawdown Georgia to be Featured in UN-Habitat 2021 #Innovate4Cities Online Conference

Join the Ray C. Anderson Foundation and Drawdown Georgia for a featured presentation on October 13th at 7:30 p.m. with John Lanier, executive director of the Ray C. Anderson Foundation and one of the founders of Drawdown Georgia; Dr. Marilyn Brown, Core Research Team for Drawdown Georgia and Regents and Brook Byers Professor of Sustainable Systems, School of Public Policy, Georgia Institute of Technology, in conversation with Dr. Jairo Garcia, adjunct faculty member, Sustainable Urban Development, School of City and Regional Planning, College of Design at Georgia Institute of Technology.

UN-Habitat and the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy (GCoM) invite you to be part of Innovate4Cities 2021, October 11-15, 2021. Also known as I4C, Innovate4Cities 2021 is a virtual global and regional event that promises to bring together science and innovation, policy and practice united by a common objective: enabling cities to take accelerated and more ambitious climate action.

Across the globe, as societies tackle COVID-19 recovery in earnest, there is a real opportunity to build back better — to build cleaner, more resilient, sustainable societies and a fairer world.

Aligned with other international conferences, events and consultations focused on complementary themes, Innovate4Cities 2021 is strategically timed. It will follow marquee events, including Race to ZeroRace to Resilience, the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), and the Convention on Biological Diversity. It will precede arguably the biggest climate change event taking place this year, virtually and on a limited in-person basis in Glasgow, namely the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP) discussions this November.
