How can you join the Cities4Children movement?

Want to build a Cities4Children Alliance in your city or country?

On July 15th 2022, we launch a call for applications for local (city/country) partners who have the needed experience and resources to set up Cities for Children and Youth alliances in African, Asian, and Latin American cities/countries. At the World Urban Forum in June 2022 in Poland, we launched the process to set up country/city chapters of this alliance. We organised a workshop and ran an online survey to gather inputs about how this would work best. Based on this input, we prepared the application form below.

Who can apply?

This application is open to any type of organisation that is based in cities in Africa, Asia and Latin America: thinktanks, CSOs, NGOs, university departments, etc. In this phase we are not accepting applications from other regions. Organisations that apply must have 1) a formal registration 2) have expertise and past projects on any of the relevant thematic areas.
