We are pleased to welcome our partners, stakeholders, and new faces to Lahti this spring for a long-overdue opportunity to gather in person and engage in discussion and cooperation in the dynamic environment offered by the WALCC Forum
Our ambition is to develop the World Alliance for Low Carbon Cities into a global, professional community uniting leading experts with a strong interest in furthering the development of low-carbon cities
What does the Alliance offer?
The community is supported by an online platform (walcc.org) for knowledge exchange and through bi-annual forums, which provide individuals and organizations with useful information, as well as an opportunity to address an international audience.
Together, the services provided by the WALCC help to strengthen its network of like-minded individuals by providing a platform, which enables them to connect with other professionals all around the world and drive low-carbon development together.
The New Logic of Urban Innovation
Published in October 2019 together with the Nordic Urban Mobility Ecosystem and Synocus this publication introduces the concept of “transcendent innovation” as a new way for cities to combine the immediate and longer-term perspectives in working collaboratively to achieve their targets.
The World Alliance for Low Carbon Cities is open to cities, companies and research institutes committed to furthering the global fight to mitigate the effects of climate change.
Members gain the possibility to influence policy and standard-making and, thus, to better position themselves in the growing low-carbon technology and services market.
