We invite you to join the international conference Green Urban Actions: How is the Urban Agenda for the EU contributing to the green transition. We will get to know the cities that have successfully responded to climate change. Together with representatives from cities like Genoa, Helsinki and Preston, we will discuss how cities can adapt and respond to climate change and change the quality of life of their inhabitants and communities.
Green Urban Actions
How is the Urban Agenda for the EU contributing to the green transition
Thursday, October 22, 2020
Zoom online platform
Many cities, already facing challenges in the local environment, have developed exciting solutions that can inspire other European cities in a fair green transition.
Following the example of the European Urban Knowledge Network (EUKN), we will focus on partnerships that have a strong environmental focus, a.k.a. the green core, namely energy transition, innovative and responsible public procurement, air quality, circular economy, climate adaptation, sustainable land use, and urban mobility.
These partnerships emphasize the growing role of cities in responding to the climate and environmental crisis by changing patterns of production, consumption and operation. Green partnerships recognize and emphasize the need for cooperation to reduce the environmental impact of urban areas while improving the quality of life and strength of communities.
At the event, we will have an opportunity to listen to the representatives of cities across Europe, who will bring us closer to the content created in the action plans of the Urban Agenda for the EU through the presentations of innovative solutions they have introduced in their local environment.
The conference is organized by the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning of the Republic of Slovenia, IPoP – Institute for Spatial Policy and the Association of Municipalities and Towns of Slovenia. It is a side event of the European Week of Regions and Cities 2020.
