Future Earth is among the partner organisations of the cities and climate change (CitiesIPCC) conference, which will be held in the city of Edmonton in March 2018. According to the conference description, its primary goal is to:

… assess the state of scholarship and practice-based knowledge on cities and climate change, and to establish a research agenda based on the identification of key gaps through a stakeholder dialogue between the academic, practitioner and policy-making communities. The conference aims to inspire the next frontier of research in these identified areas, forge partnerships among these communities to conduct these most effectively, initiate key necessary but still missing information and data platforms, and catalyse appropriate structured funding for meeting these agendas.
