(Local Governments For Sustainability)
ICLEI is the leading global network of 1,500+ cities, towns and regions committed to building a sustainable future. Through our collective efforts, we impact more than 25 percent of the global urban population.
Local and regional governments across the ICLEI network work alongside a diverse team of global experts in 22 offices active across 124 countries. Together, we address the local impacts of unprecedented global change, from climate change to urbanization, aiming for urban development to have the least possible impact on global systems and to build communities that are people-centered and equitable.
ICLEI firmly believes that sustainable cities are the foundation of a more just and sustainable world. We are doing our part to make urban sustainability an inextricable part of all development at the subnational, national and global levels
ICLEI has hijacked the agenda of over 1500 cities so far.
ICELI effects more than 25% of urban population.
Here is some more about their 5 Pathways.
Our pathways, our approach
ICLEI engages at the local to global levels, shaping policy and sparking action to transform urban environments worldwide. We build connections across levels of government, sectors and stakeholder groups, sparking city-to-city, city-to-region, local-to-global and local-to-national connections. By linking subnational, national and global actors, policies, commitments and actions, ICLEI strengthens action at all levels, in support of sustainable urban development.
At the subnational level, ICLEI drives change along five interconnected pathways that cut across sectors and jurisdictional boundaries. This design enables local and regional governments to think and design solutions in a holistic and integrated way, creating change across entire urban systems.
These pathways, outlined below, were released as part of the ICLEI Montréal Commitment and Strategic Vision 2018-2024, our roadmap for sustainable urban development.
(1) City to City
(2) City to Region
(3) Local to Global
(4) Local to National
Let’s be clear on this. This is taking the globalist agenda down to the local level. The wealth transfer schemes and right-destroying ideas are being implemented within the cities.
Global advocacy is a big part of ICELI.
“ICLEI aims to build a global policy environment that supports local and regional governments in their efforts to scale up sustainable urban development worldwide.
Through our advocacy, we have reshaped the global sustainability landscape to ensure local and regional governments are recognized, engaged and resourced, and demonstrated their crucial role in translating global policy into action.
Members of the ICLEI network are an integral part of our global advocacy. They represent ICLEI in intergovernmental processes and national dialogues that form the basis for implementing the global sustainable development agenda.
ICLEI is active in efforts to advance the new global sustainable development agenda – including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Climate Agreement and the New Urban Agenda.”
Straight from the horse’s mouth: their goal is to promote UN agenda
(A) Agenda 2030
(B) Paris Climate Agreement
(C) New Urban Agenda
ICLEI is to be represented in intergovernmental processes and talks to implement SDA goals.
Looking through their vision, it becomes clear that ICLEI is relying on large amounts of money to push and promote their agenda.
ICLEI charges a fee, for its members. But don’t worry. It’s on a sliding scale.
