The German Association for Housing, Urban and Spatial Development and the German Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community invite you to take part in the web series “Europe’s Cities Fit for Future”: six online sessions spread over three days during the GERMAN EU COUNCIL PRESIDENCY. Together participants will discuss issues such as:
- What can the New Leipzig Charter and the EU cohesion policy contribute to resilient cities and regions fit for future?
- What are the approaches of JUST, GREEN and PRODUCTIVE front-runner cities and regions?
JPI Urban Europe is contributing to the initial kick-off session Future-Proof Cities & Regions – What a New Leipzig Charter Wants to Contribute on 3 September 09.45-12.00. At the heart of this kick-off session are questions such as how to cope with climate change, increasing social fragmentation, digitalisation, new economies and the number of different challenges cities are facing and how to cope with them and what the New Leipzig Charter and its principles could contribute? We will hear keynotes of VOLKMAR VOGEL, Parliamentary State Secretary to the German Federal Minister responsible for urban development, as well as other high-ranking officials and experts. Furthermore, voices of European urban development experts and moderated discussions are on the agenda.
