The City of Edmonton will proudly welcome Cities and Climate Change Science Conference taking place from March 5 to 7, 2018, at the Shaw Conference Centre. The conference aims to inspire global research to inform a special report on cities and to support the implementation of the Paris Agreement and 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda in cities.

175 Volunteers are Needed! 

Volunteers will be valuable and integral to the delivery of the conference, as well as to the other important ‘Change for Climate’ events leading up to, and during the conference.

CitiesIPCC Conference: This ‘first of its kind’ conference was announced in Marrakech at COP22 Climate Change Conference, in 2016. It is being organized and supported by ten of the world’s most notable scientific and urban organizations. Up to 800 conference participants from Canada and across the globe will convene in Edmonton for the purpose of advancing the global understanding of how climate change impacts cities, and the role of cities in tackling climate change.

Change for Climate Events: The City will be hosting a Mayors’ Summit in advance of the conference, a Community Series providing opportunities for Edmontonians to participate, and a Solution Showcase Exhibition.
