Two calls provide cities with opportunity to fund partnerships – deadline 8 March & 12 April!

The International Urban Cooperation Programme has announced the launch of its second round of city to city partnerships with a new call for applications. The initiative will see about 25 European local governments with more than 100,000 inhabitants matched with international counterparts facing similar sustainability challenges from China, Chile, India, Japan, Peru and the United States. Five Climate Alliance members were able to take advantage of the first round of pairings held last year including Mannheim (DE), Frankfurt am Main (DE), Essen (DE), Hamburg (DE) and Graz (AT). The deadline for submissions for the second round is 8 March 2018.

A separate call by Urban Europe has also been recently launched with a focus on pairing EU cities with peers in China. The call goes by the name of Urban Europe’s Sustainable and Liveable Cities and Urban Areas and has a registration deadline of 12 April 2018. Informational webinars will be held for this call on 13 February and 6 March.
