Urban Megatrends and Future Challenges for European Urban Areas
27 March 2014, The Committee of the Regions - Rue Belliard 101, Brussels
The aim of the event is to bring together representatives from the JPI Urban Europe and the European Institutions as well as from other urban networks, along with high-profile scientific and policy experts to discuss issues relating to megatrends and future urban challenges.
The JPI Urban Europe has recently finalised two studies on global megatrends and their long term impacts on European cities that will be presented and discussed at the seminar. The scientific background paper gives and in-depth analysis of urban challenges. The Urban Megatrends policy paper indicates that global megatrends, including climate change and demographic and economic development, will have a regionally differentiated impact on European urban regions and implications for policy-making at all levels.
