COOPERATING WITH UNIDO ON 3RD BRIDGE FOR CITIES

October 10

ICDO’s “Costumes of the World”

Location: UN Headquarters, Vienna, Austria

ICDO cooperated with UNIDO – United Nations Industrial Development Organization as an Activity-Level Partner for the United Smart Cities at the 3rd “Bridge for Cities” event at the Vienna International Center on October 10th, 2018, organizing “ICDO’s Costumes of the World”.

The 3rd “BRIDGE for Cities” event revolved around urban-industrial development, taking the green industry and sustainable development as its central theme. The goal was to establish a platform centered on demand-driven matchmaking through which government stakeholders, development agencies and business-sector investors could share their demands and challenges, forge partnerships and negotiate an investment.

At the same time, it aimed to showcase concrete examples of urban-industrial solutions with 4 case cities (Chengdu, Shanghai, Trieste, and Vienna) and their municipal leaders highlighting ongoing and future projects in a variety of sectors. Moreover, this event was aimed to further the implementation of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

ICDO believes that by participating in this project we contributed to the advancement of sustainable development while at the same time furthering our mission of safeguarding diversity.
