During the conference participants will:
- Learn from experts by attending a series of high calibre plenaries, panel discussions, presentations, and workshops.
- Explore the City of Vancouver through local study-tours and see how the City’s bold initiative, Greenest City 2020, addresses environmental challenges, supports the local economy, and fosters healthier people and places.

The European Green Capital Award grew out of an initiative launched by 15 European cities and the Association of Estonian Cities on 15th May 2006 in Tallinn, Estonia. The selection of a city to be awarded the European Green Capital is assessed by an Expert Panel on the basis of twelve environmental indicators. Climate change: mitigation and adaptation is one of the 12 indicators.
