The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) in partnership with DG Environment and the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, is organising a conference on "Enhancing Resilience of Urban Ecosystems through Green Infrastructure". The conference is taking place under the Joint Technical Platform for Cooperation on the Environment.
The conference will present the main scientific and policy outcomes of EnRoute, a European Parliament Pilot project, which provides knowledge of how urban green infrastructure can support urban policy objectives at different stages of planning and for various spatial scales.
This meeting provides a forum for policy makers and scientists to exchange ideas of how urban green infrastructure solutions can reconcile urban growth with objectives on biodiversity, quality of life and public health, adaptation to climate change, sustainable urban planning, disaster risk reduction etc.
Participants may speak in and listen to: EN/FR/DE/FI/IT/NL
The agenda will shortly be available on the website of the
Technical Platform for Cooperation on the Environment.
