In the context of the European Week of Regions and Cities 2020, a workshop on Sustainable Use of Land & NSB in Europe will be held online on the 14 October 2020 from 9:30 to 11:00am.
Thematic cluster: Cohesion and Cooperation
The SUL & NBS Partnership will explain, through the outputs generated during the last 3 years, the development of policies, initiatives, handbooks and guides in the framework of the Urban Agenda for the EU and the Paris Agreement. Green, compact and energy-efficient cities make a key contribution to sustainable growth. They play a crucial role in implementing various projects and initiatives at the European level. The fast pace of urbanisation in Europe is bringing about a number of unprecedented challenges related, inter alia, to the prevention and management of urban sprawl, the promotion of sustainable land-use, the prioritisation of renewal, regeneration and retrofitting of urban areas and the redevelopment of brownfield sites, the provision of high-quality buildings, public space and mobility policies, the protection of urban green areas and the promotion of nature-based solutions. It will be an opportunity to present and discuss some of the specific actions and recommendations proposed.
Registrations are open until 27 September 2020.
