As local Green waves sweep Europe, join us for this engaging webinar that asks the question: “What is a Green City?”
About the Event:
Our speakers will be exploring what it means to be a Green city. What are the aspects, actions and procedures that a city needs to follow before it can proudly call itself Green? After short presentations we’ll open the floor and give you the chance to share ideas, questions and comments.
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.
With greens getting stronger and stronger at local level and even boasting a presence in parts of Europe where they underperform nationally, GEF and its partners are working to further explore and exchange on these progressive cities and networks – documenting their successes and fostering connections.
