Mr David Teller, UNGC-Cities Programme Director & Committee for Melbourne Acting CEO, spoke about the “The United Nations Global Compact – Cities Programme: Melbourne-based urban governance and innovation” at the Sustainable Cities Round Table, 1 August.

As phrased in their website:
“The UNGC – Cities Programme is an urban-focused component of the UN Global Compact. The programme provides a unique model for cities across the globe to develop innovative and sustainable solutions to long-term and intractable challenges based on the ten principles of the Global Compact in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption”.
