Every three years, the international network ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability, carries out its World Congress to gather cities and territories and work towards the construction of a sustainable future. This year, the attending cities met in Montreal (Canada) between June 18 to 22, to “globalize the cities’ sustainability.”

Medellín participated in the ICLEI South America meeting, presenting successful experiences related to waste management; sustainable mobility and low carbon impact; as well as sustainable and participatory urban design. The representation of the city was headed by the Secretary of the Environment, Sergio Andrés Orozco.

Medellín joined ICLEI in August 2013. Since then, ACI Medellín has been responsible for the relationship of the city with this International Network, facilitating the attraction of cooperation opportunities and positioning Antioquia’s capital as a leader in best practices of sustainable development
