Sustainable urban development – webinar series

24 August 2020

The European Green Capital Network has a new series of webinars to join up all cities and relevant stakeholders with EGCN experts to discuss sustainable urban development and the findings of their related toolkits of policy recommendations and strategies.

Since 2018, the European Green Capital Network has developed toolkits encapsulating the shared knowledge and experience of European Green Capital Award winners and finalists and providing recommendations and strategies around key thematic visions for sustainable urban development.

Now the EGCN aims to open this discussion to all cities and relevant stakeholders to enable exchange with EGCN experts around four vision clusters: Future-Proof, 100% Renewable, Zero Waste and Human Scale. The fifth webinar will focus on tips for cities interested in applying for the European Green Capital Award.
