Philippe Rio, Mayor of Grigny and Co-President of UCLG Committee on Social Inclusion, Participatory Democracy and Human Rights (UCLG-CSIPDHR), highlighted the importance of human rights in achieving the 2030 Agenda. For this, he explained the contribution of the global campaign 10, 100, and 1000 Human Rights Cities and Territories by 2030, undertaken by UCLG-CSIPDHR.

The mayor emphasised the urgent need to embrace a new narrative that prioritises human rights and ensures their vitality within our cities. Central to this vision is the commitment to climate and social justice, thereby creating a more inclusive and equitable environment for all. He further stressed: “We need to guarantee the right to the city for all.”
