Representatives of hundreds of cities call for halving violence by 2030
The global challenge of violence demands a global response. While national governments are key to preventing conflict, fighting crime and reducing domestic violence, cities are even more central players when it comes to preventing and reducing violence.
The resolution of the Global Parliament of Mayors to halve violence by 2030 is a powerful demonstration of city diplomacy and solidarity. It is the first time that cities from around the world have come together to form a common position on violence prevention and reduction. City leaders from Bristol, Budapest, Madrid and Mannheim to Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, Dayton, Santiago, and Amman, Haifa, Rabat, Hebron and Cape Town committed to this objective. Alongside the GPM and Peace In Our Cities, is the European Forum for Urban Security (EFUS), the African Forum for Urban Security (AFUS), the Mayors Migration Council (MMC), Strong Cities Network (SCN) and the US Conference of Mayors (USCM).
