The Innovate4Cities Conference 2021 brought together a global collection of scientists, policymakers, academics and citizen voices. The conference sought to address gaps in global knowledge and innovation, how and why to take action on climate change, and enable partnership building and collaboration while setting the stage for COP26. This report summarises the Innovate4Cities Conference 2021 and outlines key messages, whilst identifying knowledge gaps and offering areas for further research. Subsequent recommendations integrate general observations and context-specific case studies with the intention of mobilising multi-tiered climate action. The report was produced by a team of 32 students who attended the conference, rapporteured, and synthesised key messages.
