In Search of a Green City
About the event
What makes a city “green”? Planning, Mobility, Architecture, Climate and Energy, Waste,
Green Spaces, Biodiversity, Food System … Initiatives and commitments are multiplying, such as the Pact of Mayors for Energy and Climate, the Milan Pact, Circular Cities, Cities Without Pesticides, Green Cities Agreement, Declaration of Glasgow, among many others that can be voluntarily assumed by cities and municipalities to be more sustainable or ecological …
Do these commitments reach the public? How do they articulate with Spatial Planning? Are they transparent to the citizen? How do you know that such commitments have an effect?
In this webinar, the Green European Foundation and its partner Quercus will review some of these initiatives and discuss the ways that can safely take us towards greener cities. We will also go into two relatively recent approaches, that of local food policies and action plans for the biodiversity.
