Be part of the transformation!
The COVID-19 pandemic is leading us all to be uncertain about the future. Given the critical importance of transformation to a sustainable society, we commit to ensuring that you can take part in the Mannheim2020 conference in some way – hopefully on site in Mannheim.
Held every three years, the conference is the multi-level interface between the European Union and sustainability action at local level.
Local transformation needs to be brought to the next level in all aspects of society. Europe needs solutions for major environmental, economic and social challenges!
