The WWF is run at a local level by the following offices...
- "We Love Cities" is a public engagement campaign, led by WWF that encourages people from all over the world to express their support for sustainable urban development by voting for their cities all over the world.
- In this edition, 54 cities around the world participate in the contest. 22 are Latin American cities and three are Peruvian: Jesús María, San Isidro and Lima. The campaign runs from September 19 to October 31. Learn how to vote for your favorite city.
In addition to granting wide visibility to cities, "We love cities" seeks to inspire and raise awareness about the cities’s progress towards sustainability criteria. Also, it’s a chance to recognize communities and strengthen their bond with authorities and decision makers, through of their votes on social networks and of the votes and suggestions sent to the cities through the contest website.
Until the 2020 edition, “We Love Cities” had the participation of more than 150 cities. Its main achievements are the 100,000 suggestions sent to local governments for the construction of more sustainable cities.
It is worth to mention that cities that participate in this contest, also participated in “One Planet City Challenge”, an initiative that marks the climate actions and ambitions of cities, evaluating if they are aligned with the main goals established in the Paris Agreement.

“As an organization, WWF supports the cities’s sustainable development encouraging people to be aware of ecological limits and new environmental challenges our planet is facing” says Daniela Freundt, Leader of the Cities and Climate Change Program at WWF Peru.
