The Informed Cities initiative - making research work for local sustainability - is a European initiative driven by ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability which aims to bridge the gap between research, policy-making and action in sustainable development, at and for the local level.

Drawing on various research projects, the Informed Cities initiative is a meeting place for dreamers, thinkers and doers who want to co-create the future of European cities.
