To create communities that offer hope instead of desperation, cities must promote a sense of belonging and treat young people as equal and capable partners. If local authorities harness the qualities of youth and work closely with them to plan, design and manage cities, we could see more liveable communities”

- Siamak Sam Loni


The Local Pathways Fellowship seeks to provide young leaders with the tools, a platform and a guiding framework for action, and connect them with leading urban development experts and practitioners.

The fellows will take on a journey throughout which they will explore pathways for "localizing" the globally adopted goals and targets, exchange knowledge and ideas, and work to engage local stakeholders in a dialogue around strategies and plans their city needs to build a better future for its citizens.


Thank you for your interest in becoming a Local Pathways Fellow.

The opening date for Applications to join the 2018 cohort of the Local Pathways Fellows will be announced here.
