The International Conference on Climate Action in Heidelberg, Germany, on 22 and 23 of May 2019 will be hosted by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety together with the State of Baden-Württemberg and the City of Heidelberg. Leaders from national and subnational governments as well as high-level representatives from international organisations, initiatives and networks will engage in interactive debates on how to enhance coordination and cooperation across all levels of government and to scale up climate action.

ICCA2019 will offer a varied and dialogue-oriented programme, including three plenary sessions and several parallel interactive cluster sequences. Collaborative climate action will be considered from sectoral perspectives and in the light of cross-sectoral policy levers. Furthermore, participants will have the opportunity to contribute to and advance initiatives for the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit in September 2019. ICCA2019 particularly invites decision-makers at all levels of government and multipliers for climate-friendly sustainable development. These include ministers and high-level representatives from national and subnational governments, mayors, and their global networks. Participants will also include representatives from UN organisations and other globally known organisations, international financial institutions, civil society, business and academia.
