Join us for the last event of the year of the “Cities As Places of Hope Project”. Over a roundtable, we’ll discuss the power of cities to transform communities towards more resilient and democratic societies and explore local green policies in North Macedonia and Europe.

About the Event

As part of this event we will discuss the wave of local green transformations across countless cities in Europe, setting a path for a different urban living future. We will hear the perspectives of independent and green local counselors as well as community leaders, whose actions and initiatives could lead the transformation.


The purpose of this roundtable will be to present GEF and its partners’ research and mapping of progressive and transformative practices on the Western Balkans, explore possibilities for cities to organise themselves in trans-local networks, and connect them to the Green movement to facilitate their exchanges. The findings of the Cities as places of hope project and local green examples presented at the event will focus on the fields of mobility, housing, energy, waste, food and climate.

This event will bring EU green local policies from different cities across Europe exploring transformative practices. We will look at the steps already taken and the roadmap ahead to turn our cities into places of hope.
