Sustainable Societies

IGES envisions sustainable societies as those that are low-carbon, resource efficient and conservation-oriented, so as to ensure a safe, inclusive and equitable future for all.
 
Realising sustainable cities and societies requires taking actions at the local level. We work closely with local and city governments, international organisations, including ASEAN, and other development partners on issues such as building low-carbon societies, ensuring sustainability transitions, developing sustainable cities and transport, and forging sustainable lifestyles and education.
