Partnerships For Action

08.10.2019 | 9:30 - 12:00

Teaterøen, Magneten, William Wains Gade 18, 1432 Copenhagen

In a collaboration with The SDG Action University CSR Forum and SDG Leadership are celebrating the C40 Mayors Summit 2019.

Join our morning meeting October the 8th. and get inspiration from our international network of partners and visit the exotic venue at Teaterøen 10 min. from Copenhagen City.


How to create and mobilize partnerships for actions? One strategy is to use the universities as a driver for Smart Cites (The Cluj-Napoca- case). Another strategy is to use culture as a way to boost social movements (The Action University – case).  Partnerships seems not only to be a question about building bridges. Rather the question seems to be: How can vertical structures create more ‘flat’ and horizontal processes able to create value on multiple bottom lines?
