DUT Conference 2024

Driving Urban Transitions through Joint Action

Join us in Brussels 10-12 April 2024, as we bring together urban leaders, practitioners, researchers, investors, and visionaries at the forefront of sustainable urban transition. The Driving Urban Transitions (DUT), a European Partnership committed to supporting cities in their journey to become sustainable, resilient, and inclusive, invites you to be part of the journey!

With less than six years left to go until 2030, the DUT Conference 2024 will bring together a multitude of stakeholders for collaborative learning and action, fostering discussions on the essential next steps at the global, national, and local levels to strengthen the dynamics of the transition.

Join us in addressing the challenges and delivering on the promises of research and innovation in a mission-oriented context.
