Renewable Cities convened Global Learning Forum 2017 to discuss the transition to 100% renewable energy cities. Taking place over three days, beginning on May 17, 2017, the event brought together energy leaders and champions from 105 different municipalities across 12 different countries and 22 provinces and states.
With a focus on sharing solutions between jurisdictions and across disciplines, delegates participated in nearly 50 workshops, plenaries, site visits, side meetings, and special events over the course of Global Learning Forum 2017. Cities working on ambitious renewable energy transition agendas came together with those who were curious about following suit.
To inspire participants at Global Learning Forum 2017, we have created this video to mark the progress made since our first Forum, held in 2015. This inspiring video was unveiled during opening night activities.
Of the 350+ participants of Global Learning Forum 2017, over a dozen cities with 100% renewable energy commitments were represented by mayors, councillors, and staff from around the world. They, along with key partners in the 100% renewable energy movement, are pictured below.
