    Green Week 2016 Partner event: 'Social Innovation for Accelerating Transition to Sustainable Cities'

    30 May 2016, Brussels

    Cities are homes of innovative solutions and alternative social arrangements. Social innovations come in many forms, including nature-based solutions and people-based solutions that hand in hand transform our cities, district-by-district, one infrastructure service at a time. These actor-networks that we call transition initiatives come in various shapes and sizes, led by actors from public, private and civil society sectors or spanning across sectoral divides, and have become increasingly visible in many European cities. Transition initiatives as makers of social innovations in cities foster new relationships, new institutions and, ultimately, can contribute to the emergence of new urban realities: the sharing economy, green low-carbon economies, and new sustainable lifestyles.

    SEMINAR AGENDA

    • Opening
    • Session I: THE KNOWNS – what makes cities accelerate to low-carbon futures?
    • Session II: THE CATALYSTS – power, politics and momentum of urban social innovation
    • Roundtable discussion with questions from audience


    Registration is compulsory and will be open until Thursday 26 May. To register to the event, please click here.

    Venue: Committee of the Regions Van Maerlant Street n°2, 1040 Brussels (EC building VM2 - room VMA 1 - 2nd floor)
