24 March 2020 - A group of partners is coming together to devise what elements are needed to design an “SDG currency” in cities. This potential tool could help local governments to interact with their citizens to guide the individual behavior change that will be needed to change our ways of living in the city. The SDG currency could help local governments to measure how citizens use public services, impact the environment, consume local goods and how to change the impact of such individual behavior to make cities more sustainable.

Speakers Include:

  • Diana Lopez Caramazana, Local Governments Unit, UN-Habitat (Moderator)
  • Jean Francois Habeau, Executive Director, FMDF – Global Fund for the Development of Cities
  • Petr Suska, Leader, Team Urban Economy Innovation, Fraunhofer IAO
  • Afolabi Olubunmi Adejumo, Budget adviser for the City of Abuja, Nigeria
  • Miquel Rodriguez Planas, Commissioner for Agenda 2030, Office of the Mayor of Barcelona, Spain
  • Cyril Klepek, CEO and Founder of Cyrkl 
  • Anand Kantaria, UN SDG Action Campaign (Respondent)
