On 22 September 2022, the Strong Cities Network (SCN) will hold a two-hour side event in the margins of the high-level opening of the 77th United Nations General Assembly.

This high-level event will focus on the unique role that cities can play in safeguarding local democracy and providing security for their citizens, elevating innovative and promising practices that were shared during a series of SCN-led workshops and webinars on this topic over the past year.

Mayors and local practitioners from across the globe will showcase innovative city-led responses to an increasingly interconnected, mainstreamed, and localised extremism threat, providing insights into opportunities for supporting local authority-action.

The event will also feature the release of a new SCN report produced as part of an EU-funded initiative on mapping the prevention needs and priorities of cities and other local authorities in Africa and will officially launch the EU-funded STRIVE Cities, a three-year SCN-led initiative that will establish Regional Hubs in East and Southern Africa, and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
