Are you interested in discussing how cities and citizens have responded to the corona virus crisis? Join us for a series of webinars that will search for a Green City across Eastern Europe and the Balkans.

About the Event:

The series will share personal stories and experiences from activists, practitioners and citizens in different cities, primarily from Eastern Europe/ the Balkans. Together with them we will explore how cities and citizens have responded to the coronavirus crisis, and if their actions were directed towards well-being, social justice and ecological sustainability. We will explore whether the crisis has been experienced as an obstacle or an opportunity for transformation of urban environments.
