Evanston will partner with Renca, Chile through the Cities Forward program, an initiative that pairs cities from across the Americas in “project consultation, co-design, and knowledge sharing.”

Evanston was one of 24 cities selected from 129 applicants to participate in the program, a joint initiative between the U.S. Department of State, ICLEI — Local Governments for Sustainability, Resilient Cities Catalyst and The Institute for the Americas.  Evanston is one of just two midwestern cities selected for the program alongside Dubuque, Iowa. 

The cities will participate in a series of workshops and dialogues as part of the program, according to ICLEI. The goal, the NGO’s website says, is to “build capacity through shared knowledge to address common challenges.” 

“We are honored to be selected and excited to participate in this program,” said Evanston Mayor Daniel Biss in a press release. “It is fitting to bring an international approach to this most global of issues, and we enthusiastically look forward to sharing our ideas with and learning from Renca and the other communities engaged in the Academy.”
