About this Event

Thanks you for your interest in our European Week of the Regions and Cities side-event on Thursday 10 October from 08:30 until 11:00.

The European Commission’s Communication 'Clean Planet for All' presents a long-term vision for a climate neutral economy by 2050. Many of the environmental challenges are often visible in our cities, but it is also here that solutions are often developed. Cities are therefore key in meeting the EU's environmental challenges. The seminar will highlight how cities can in different ways contribute to the goal of a climate neutral EU. During the session, 5 cities - Bristol, Gothenburg, Lyon, Oslo, and Utrecht - will present their ambitious work in the field of climate adaptation.

The breakfast session will take place at the Bristol & Bath Brussels Office, 108 Rue du Trône, 1050 Brussels. Please see the agenda below.
