Inspiring #Act4SDGs practices and lessons from city-to-city learning

Since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in September 2015, the city-to-city and peer learning processes facilitated by UCLG Learning have been looking at the role of local public policies in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

As we approach the SDG Summit in September 2023, we invite you to explore some of the inspiring practices and key lessons to #Act4SDGs that have come out from the exchanges and mutual learning among local and regional governments from all over the world in the last eight years.
