The World Alliance for Low Carbon Cities is a non-profit, independently founded and organized alliance which seeks to further research and demonstrations between core actors from Cities and the Academic and Corporate worlds, in the areas of Urban Planning, Urban Transportation, Green Building, and Renewable Resources.
Our ambition is to develop the World Alliance for Low Carbon Cities into a global, professional community uniting leading experts with a strong interest in furthering the development of low-carbon cities.
The community is supported by an online platform for knowledge exchange (www.walcc.org) and through bi-annual forums, which provide individuals and organizations with useful information, as well as an opportunity to address an international audience.
Together, the services provided by the WALCC help to strengthen its network of likeminded individuals by providing a platform, which enables them to connect with other professionals all around the world and drive low-carbon development together.
