With the current form of the Urban Agenda for the EU (UAEU) coming to an end, it is essential to capitalise on its achievements, explore linkages and synergies with other relevant initiatives and feed into its renewal process. In this context, a series of three webinars will be organised in line with the Green, Just and Productive city dimensions, as established under the New Leipzig Charter (NLC). Entitled ‘How are urban initiatives and actions supporting Green, Just and Productive Cities in the EU?’, the webinars will showcase examples and initiatives from cities on how to develop resilience and further the implementation of these dimensions at the local level, and providing a space for discussing achievements, remaining issues and future opportunities to help cities face their challenges in a strategic way and thus contribute to sustainable urban development. They will also feature some of the initiatives and policies of relevance by the European Commission. The webinars will take place on the following dates, between 14:00 – 16:00 CEST: • The Productive City: 20 September 2021 • The Green City: 27 September 2021 • The Just City: 4 October 2021 They will be based around the series of articles on the 14 Partnerships of the Urban Agenda for the EU which link actions and activities with other relevant EU projects and initiatives supported by Cohesion Policy (including Urban Innovative Actions, URBACT and Article 7 cities benefitting from the European Regional Development fund (ERDF). These webinars are open events, especially welcoming the participation of UAEU Partners, representatives from URBACT, UIA and Article 7 Cities, and interested cities and managing authorities who would like to benefit from these presentations and discussions.
