In 2020 we have found our lives shaped by Covid-19; when we face down the consequences, are there Green solutions?  How has the pandemic changed the Green paths our cities were on? 

About the Event:

In this event we’ll be looking at how Green policies can be implemented at local level, to help face the challenges of Covid-19. We will also hear reflections from Green politicians on the ground, discovering how day to day governance is being disrupted.


This webinar is part of the GEF transnational project Cities as Places of Hope, which explores the power of cities to defy populist narratives and right-wing forces at the national level, and instead pursue progressive, transformative, and future-oriented policies across the continent.
