Join us for our #EUGreenWeek Partner Event
The Nordic countries are known for their green cities, full of accessible green and blue spaces, surrounded by agricultural land, vast forests and lakes.
Nordic leaders fully support a European Carbon Neutrality target for 2050, and prioritise collaboration, especially regarding innovations that can be scaled up to global impact.
This event will share best practices and challenges from the Nordic capitals on how to integrate urbanism with care for biodiversity, nature, climate and circularity.
Target group: Cities, decision makers, EU policy makers, NGOs, research institutions etc.
A link will be sent to registered participants within a day before the digital event.
