Shaping Fair Cities - Integrate Agenda 2030 in local policies, in a time of massive migration flows

Shaping Fair Cities wants to increase awareness and actively involve local decision makers, civil servants, organizations and citizens in the application of the Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), by promoting the key role of local authorities in implementing the new objectives and pave the way for a local Agenda 2030.

SDGs are a set of 17 ambitious global objectives, defined in 2015 and developed through a dialogue among member States of United Nations, local authorities, civil society, private sector and other interested parties.

The project concentrates on 4 SDGs: Sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11); Peace, justice and strong institutions (SDG 16); Climate action (SDG 13); Gender equality (SDG 5).

The aim is to integrate Agenda 2030 in local policies, considering current migration challenges, through a communication campaign and an advocacy project, lead and implemented by the involved local authorities.

Among the several actions, the project foresees:

- training and communication activities, in order to educate and raise the awareness of citizens and local authorities;

- the development of different materials (video clips, advertisings, info graphics, posters, fliers, cards, give-aways, etc.) and of specific tools by organizations of civil society, culture and creative industry;

- the introduction of different digital tools, with particular attention to the involvement of migrants and vulnerable groups and in a gender perspective, such as a policies learning platform, a project YouTube channel and a web doc developed under the coordination of the Emilia-Romagna Region;

- the organisation of Fair Cities Days”, a three days European event, taking place in Bologna, addressed to representatives of local authorities, business directors, experts and professors, that will foresee laboratories, conferences and debates, studying and deepening proposed themes, with the aim of creating synergies between politics and businesses and of starting a strategic debate on the application of development policies at local level. A special area will be dedicated to partner cities booths, allowing partners to disseminate implemented results, tools and projects.
