The City Diplomacy Lab organizes a wide range of initiatives aimed at advancing the understanding and dissemination of city diplomacy as a tool for sustainable urban development.
The City Diplomacy Lab periodically organizes in-person, hybrid, and virtual initiatives to foster international reflection on the impact and potential of local governments’ regional and global action in addressing the major transnational challenges of the present.
The Lab’s approach enables dialogue and discussion among city diplomacy practitioners (cities, city networks, national governments, and international organizations) while involving civil society actors, the world of culture and education, and the private sector.
