CITYNET Congress: Countdown to November

rectangular logoAs temperatures cool down in Seoul, the race to the 2013 CITYNET Seoul Congress is heating up. With only 50 days left, the CITYNET Secretariat is finalizing sessions, booking flights, and working with partners to create an innovative and informative congress.

What can you expect?
Our Cluster sessions are jam-packed with presentations, discussions, and outside information from the UNDP, KOTI, UNISDR, and UNESCAP to name a few. With member cities driving the discussion, there will be plenty of key best practices and experiences to take home and implement.

On Tuesday, the Congress will feature a series of sessions organized by Clean Air Asia, the Seoul Institute, and UNESCAP. These partner organizations will present their experience in responding to urban issues ranging from climate resilience, to transportation, to air quality. Here in the Secretariat Office, we are so excited about choosing which session to attend!

Finally, on Wednesday we have an all-star line up from multi-lateral foundations and for-profit partners. We’ll be revealing these collaborators soon. You will know their names and share our excitement. These sessions will focus on planning, resiliency, and technological solutions. Check back soon for more details on who and what will be on display.
