Why Aalborg?

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns, first hosted by the city of Aalborg in 1994, where the Aalborg Charter was formed.

Aalborg welcomed us back in 2004, where the Aalborg Commitments were drawn up.

30 years since the first of these ground-breaking documents was formed, we are delighted to return to Aalborg for #Aalborg2024.

The Aalborg Charter (1994)

put cities and towns on the map as leaders of sustainability action

created a collective vision of sustainability in 14 consensus declarations

initiated the European Sustainable Cities & Towns campaign

paved the way for local sustainability movements

was signed by more than 3,000 local authorities from more than 40 countries

The Aalborg Commitments (2004)

refined our common understanding and vision of sustainability

built a framework on how to embed sustainability at the local level, across municipality sectors

set qualitative objectives organised into 10 holistic themes

were designed to be flexible to meet local needs

were signed by more than 700 cities and towns

Join the change!

Come and shape the future beyond the status quo – join 1000+ participants from local and regional governments, European and international institutions, multilateral organisations, the research community, businesses and civil society to be part of the movement for urban transformation.
