About Local Pathways Fellowship

The Local Pathways Fellowship was launched in 2016 in Quito at the UN Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III) intended to build on the momentum around the adoption of the New Urban Agenda.

The inaugural cohort consisted of 70 young people from 50+ different cities around the world.

The Fellowship is one of the world’s leading training and research programs on SDG11 for young urban leaders. It offers the knowledge, resources, and platform needed to empower young urban innovators to take local actions for the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda in their localities by:

  • Guiding and informing their advocacy and outreach work;

  • Providing them with a framework for engagement with local stakeholders;

  • Facilitating mutual learning and exchange of urban solutions; and

  • Supporting their efforts to promote local understanding, dialogue and problem-solving for sustainable development.
