REsolutions to Fund Cities Annual Conference and European Meeting will take place on 3rd – 4th July 2014 at Hemicycle of the Île-de-France Regional Council in Paris. The meeting will focus on how European cities have adapted to the new economic situation, how they are being financed, and conditions for successful replication and transfer of new funding models.

Wolfgang Teubner, ICLEI Europe’s Managing Director, will provide the key note address discussing tools and models for financing the energy transition in Europe. Claire Charbit, Deputy Head of Public Governance and Territorial Development at the OECD and Alain Juppé, Mayor of Bordeaux (France) will also address the conference.

During the conference and meeting participants will be able to attend the following sessions;

The European Commission has long recognised the important role that local authorities play in improving the environment, and their high level of commitment to genuine progress. The European Green Capital Award has been conceived as an initiative to promote and reward these efforts.
