Mayors' Network

Mayors' Webinars

This is a challenging time for communities and their local leaders. The consequences of climate change, digitalisation, financial constraints and the recovery from the pandemic require transformation on the local level.

The webinars of the ACT NOW Mayor’ Network are designed to inspire local leaders to lead the change and create sustainable action in their respective communities. Therefore, in our webinar series, we explore visionary ideas, future-proof concepts and context-sensitive practices in order to provide the participants with theoretical knowledge and hands-on learnings.

The webinars are open for everyone who has a stake in the realisation of the local transformation and how innovative practices can support this process. If you are interested in participating, please get in touch with Mathis Dippon.
