Volume 16
"Talk of the Town – Exploring the City in Europe"

‘Talk of the Town’ is the 16th edition of the Green European journal, which focuses on cities and their significance across Europe and beyond, both as the site of key transformations and new dynamics, but also as political actors in their own right.

GEF - Green European Foundation

Since its inception in 2008, GEF has worked on a number of projects across Europe, on many occasions with the support of Green political foundations at national level. Such projects are based on three pillars: study and debate (for example publishing studies and reports, such as the recent analysis of national renewable energy action plans), education and training (for example holding transnational training seminars) and networking Green europe (providing a platform for national Green foundations to cooperate). GEF will continue to expand its work in 2011 in a range of areas. These include a publication on the rise of populism in Europe, the launch of a website on the Green New Deal and further support to build capacity among citizens interested in Green ideas in Europe.

Whether it's the concrete-spurting construction spree of the 1960s, the maze of traffic-clogged underground tunnels, or the patchwork of territorial local governments, Brussels can be a byword for bad urban planning. But are Brussels's critics too harsh on the city? We sit down with Evelyne Huytebroeck from Ecolo, who argues that Brussels has turned a corner and that a focus on sustainability, eco-design and participatory planning is showing signs of success.
