CSR Turkey held its first National Workshop on 27 May 2015 as part of the Sustainable Living in Cities campaign with the aim to bring business representatives closer to the urban stakeholders in developing, reviewing and implementing local sustainability strategies. CSR Turkey engages in the Campaign through its Responsible Cities Programme for Turkey.
Over 50 participants contributed to the debate about responsible cities and brainstormed directly with cities and businesses in two separate panels.
The impact achieved:
- Sustainable Living in Cities Campaign inspired active Responsible Cities for Turkey Campaign
- Mayors are now more involved in the dialogue on sustainability
Further 2 local workshops planned to create effective long term business city partnerships (Izmir and Bursa)
