Venice City Solutions 2030


The Venice City Solutions 2030 was conceived as a yearly event that highlights the role of local governments as key implementers of the 2030 Agenda. Building on the innovative experience brought about by the different HUBs, it aims to produce political recommendations, identify tools for local and regional governments to implement the SDGs and how they are working in other places.

Before becoming a Local4Action HUB, Venice City Solutions 2030 has focused on essential aspects of local SDG implementation, including multilevel financing, citizen engagement, and comprehensive city analysis.


The Local4Action HUB AICCRE – Venice City Solutions 2030 is conceived as a yearly space designed to foster multistakeholder and HUB-to-HUB cooperation, learning, and innovation by bringing governments and cities worldwide together with universities, businesses, NGOs, and civil society.

In collaboration with UNDP, UN-Habitat, the UN SDG Action Campaign, and United Cities and Local Governments, it offers a space to share and showcase experiences, culminating in a collective body of political recommendations fed by practice and ideas exchange to contribute to the political narrative around localization and fostering new partnerships. Therefore, it aims to serve as the Hub of the HUBs, forging connections and driving local-to-global collaboration.Each year recommendations are presented at the High-Level Political Forum, the formal mechanism to follow up on SDGs that gathers in New York in July of each year, giving the opportunity to transfer to member states and governments the new ideas and solutions identified during the event.

Expected Outcomes

  • Build a concrete experience at the local level that can be replicated at other levels.
  • Promote innovative city models that accelerate sustainable global development for all the partners.
  • Build paths that synchronize all hub actions into a single advocacy and lobbying activity for local authorities.


The Local4Action HUB has been able to transmit the global experiences of the cities of the world in an innovative way, speaking to the world institutions, dialoguing with local governments and adapting the narrative capacity according to the partners: a story-telling made of stimulations, visualizations, linguistic creativity.
