Shaping the Future of Sustainable and Resilient Cities Through International Cooperation
2024-01-10 16:00 - 17:00
You are invited to the first IURC-NA webinar session of 2024, focusing on international cooperation and how it can relate to the sustainable and resilient cities of the future!
Climate change and environmental deterioration have become central to cities’ urban development plans. As a result, the European Union’s IURC program facilitates the exchange of challenges and solutions internationally to accelerate the reduction of net greenhouse gas emissions and improve the quality of life in urban areas.
This first online session of 2024 will be an opportunity for cities to contribute insights and propose thematic areas they would like the program to explore, which will help define the IURC NA Thematic Networks for the following two years. Becoming part of these networks will allow cities to attend in-person events and virtual meetings where we will discuss best practices on circular economy and waste management, nature-based solutions, and sustainable urban mobility and transport, amongst others.
By joining this webinar, delegates will learn about the European Green Deal and the EU Urban Initiative, hear from city representatives about the benefits of joining the thematic networks, and become part of the international network of reference for sustainable urban development.
