Greens Reinvent the City [EN]
July 16, 2022 from 15:30 am to 17:00 am
Description: During this storytelling session, we will explore and exchange on progressive European green cities and networks – documenting their successes and strategies, and fostering learning and connections across Europe. Where Greens don’t govern cities, like in Poland, they have progressive urban movements as allies to shape national and local urban policies.
