As part of the International Urban Cooperation (IUC) initiative, the European Union has today launched a call for US cities to apply to be paired with a city in the EU around issues in sustainable urban development.
US cities who wish to exchange with an EU city facing related challenges are encouraged to apply for this IUC city-to-city cooperation program on sustainable urban development. Through the program, local leaders and municipal technical experts will be able to connect and gain new perspectives on pressing sustainable development issues. Representatives from each city will take part in study tours, staff exchange, trainings and seminars, and will design a local action plan to drive sustainable urban development.
For more information on the city pairings, including the application form, please visit http://iuc.eu/na/city-pairings/. The due date for applications is Friday 22nd September.
