What are the main dilemmas when a city starts implementing the Energy Transition? How to include the effects on air quality earlier in urban planning processes? How can cities become more compact and at the same time environmentally and visually attractive? How to encourage stakeholder participation at city level when implementing climate adaptation actions? How can mobility decisions of citizens be influenced?

These and many other questions will be discussed in a conference organised by the European Urban Knowledge Network (EUKN) on the opening day of the European Week of Regions and Cities, 7 October 2019, in Brussels.

The event will inter alia allow for an in-depth discussion of the "green" Partnerships of the Urban Agenda for the EU - those dealing with environmental issues in the stricter sense - and their implementation pathways.

Objectives: Providing policy-makers and other stakeholders with knowledge obtained from the "green" Partnerships of the Urban Agenda for the EU; delivering (new) citizens' perspectives regarding environmental urban policies

Audience: Policy-makers, practitioners, civil society/NGOs, researchers in the field of sustainability, circularity, green economy, environmental awareness, climate adaptation, energy transition

Language: English

The conference is free of charge to a limited number of participants (80). Register here.
