Shaping fair cities integrates the 2030 Agenda into the local policies thanks to an international and advocacy campaign led by local institutions.

The project recognises, highlights and enhances the role that cities and local governments must play in achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations 2030 Agenda, officially adopted in 2015 by the representatives of local and regional governments gathered in New York at a historic United Nations summit.

Thanks to a pan-European and multi-stakeholder partnership, the action will raise awareness and actively involve local decision-makers, public officials, organisations and citizens in the localisation of the SDGs, promoting the crucial role of the local governments in implementing the new set of objectives and in paving the way for a local 2030 Agenda in 8 European countries and 2 EU partner countries.

The action intends to mobilise in particular the local authorities in the implementation of the objectives that address the migration challenges and related local policies, with a strong gender approach (SDG5), promoting a peaceful and inclusive society (SDG16), making the cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable (SDG11) and taking action to fight against climate change and its impact (SDG13).
