The Advisory Board

To support its activities, strengthen cooperation with UBC member cities and better support them in their sustainable development, the UBC SCC has established an Advisory Board consisting of the three co-chairpersons, the head of the secretariat as well as currently 10 experts from our member cities. The role of the Advisory Board Members is to support the UBC Sustainable Cities Commission and the secretariat in its actions by bringing national and theme related expertise and recommendations in project related activities. This will be achieved, e.g., through support in finding important themes and topics for the Sustainable Cities e-bulletin and Bulletin and UBC Sustainable Cities Commission meetings, by proposing project themes and comment on urgent and policy related issues.

The current Advisory Board is elected until the next UBC General Conference 2017.
