Participation in the 7th International Mayors’ Conference NOW

The 7th International Mayors’ Conference NOW is not a public event. Participation only by registration. There are several ways to become a participant:

Personal Invitation

As the conference is intended as an international, interdisciplinary and interactive event, participation is curated. A certain share of participants will be invited personally by Act.Now in order to ensure a well-balanced mix with diverse areas of expertise, backgrounds and experience.

For all participants with a personal invitation, conference participation and accommodation will be covered (excluding travel). Participants are asked to take care of their travel organisation and inform Act.Now about their need of accommodation so that rooms can be booked in their name.

Conference participation should not be made impossible by financial constraints. Please contact us if you cannot cover the travel costs, so we can find a solution.

Apply as a Youth Participant – Application Closed

If you are between 16 – 25 years old, learn more here about how to apply to participate at the conference as a youth participant. We are looking for young people from different countries, contexts and walks of life and want to ensure a diverse range of participants. The selection process is based on diversity criteria. If you are selected as a youth participant, all costs (conference participation, travel and accommodation) will be covered.

Apply with a Promising Practice – Application Closed

At the conference, there will be time and space to learn from each other: Our format NOW Promising Practices showcases examples of how to improve the living together in diverse communities. Learn more here about applying with a promising practice to present at the conference. For the selection of accepted applicants, all costs (conference participation, travel and accommodation) will be covered.
