JPI Urban Europe session at United Cities and Local Governments World Congress, Durban

15 November 2019 - 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

This year’s World Summit of Local and Regional Governments is strongly focussed on the implementation of UN’s Agenda 2030 and the Climate Agreement. JPI Urban Europe will discuss with participants how experimental methods in R&I projects, such as Urban Living Labs, can contribute to achieving global goals and targets.

In the session („Urban Living Labs: Experimenting for Sustainable Urban Development“), a key note presentation will point out the key aspects of ULL and experimenting in urban areas. Furthermore, Sigrun Kabisch (Chair of the JPI UE Scientific Advisory Board) will introduce the relevance of R&I for implementing the Agenda 2030 and UN-Habitat’s New Urban Agenda. Projects from the Making Cities Work and ENSUF will highlight their experiences with experimental method to contribute to sustainable urban development and implementing global strategies. The vast time of the session will be dedicated to discuss and exchange with the audience how experimental approaches such as ULL can support urban administration in their sustainability journey and what framework conditions need to be respected in different regions across the globe when applying experimental methods.

The session organized by JPI Urban Europe will take place on 15 November, from 15.00-17.30
