We support sustainable cities by developing evidence based policy recommendations and solutions for better local economy, active citizenship and sensibility for environment with the use of new technologies, increased innovation, and improved knowlegde management.

TESEV is following the Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals) process and will create partnerships for the implementation of these goals in Turkey.
