Leading cities around the world are searching for innovative solutions to the major sustainability challenges they face, ranging from adapting to the effects of climate change, to providing their citizens with low carbon energy, waste, water and mobility options. However, many cities face challenges when working directly with the private sector. C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40), the Danish cleantech cluster CLEAN, and the International Cleantech Network (ICN) have launched the City Solutions Platform (CSP) as a way to support early engagement between cities and the private sector to accelerate the deployment of climate solutions.
Clean Tech Delta is an active member of the ICN network and is therefore in the opportunity to share the upcoming challenges from the city solutions platform:
Melbourne (workshop 6th-7th of June)
The City of Melbourne is looking to create innovative approaches to drainage and flood management that incorporates liveability and useable spaces in the Arden Macaualy precinct of Melbourne
Seattle (workshop 14th of June)
The city of Seattle is looking for experts and solution providers for a co-creation workshop to develop innovative transportation products for digital equity and mobility as a service.
