"Building the Cities We Want" - a UNECE Green Economy Seminar on sustainable urban development, Geneva

27 November 2012

10:00 - 18:00
Room VIII, Palais des Nations, Geneva

What are current and future sustainability issues in European cities?
In two thematic panels, the fourth UNECE Green Economy seminar presents trends and challenges in European cities related to energy, transport and ageing populations. It will provide the platform for a shared discussion on how to respond to these environmental, social and economic issues in order to achieve sustainable urban development in the wider European region.

Each panel includes key note presentations of city case studies, followed by experts’ input and an overview of related UNECE’s activities. During a final session, conclusions and recommendations from the thematic panel discussions will be drawn with the aim to identify potential joint activities for intersectoral cooperation in UNECE on sustainable urban development.
