European metropolitan regions and their role in implementing the new specifications for European spatial and urban development
Date: Thursday, 19 November 2020, 14:00-15:30 | Online – Microsoft Teams
European metropolitan regions play a decisive role in implementing the new specifications for spatial and urban development, as indicated in the new Leipzig Charter and the Territorial Agenda 2030. This online event will allow a reflection on these revised strategies and an analysis of the next steps to be taken with a view to their implementation in a short time after the adoption of both documents by national governments, on 30 November and 1 December, during the German Presidency of the European Council.
The notion of green, fair and productive metropolitan regions and cities has become even more relevant due to the COVID-19 pandemic. How will these specifications be implemented? Why are metropolitan regions crucial to promoting this process? What can be learned from the perspective of Member States’ cities? These and other issues will be discussed with experts directly involved in the formulation of both strategies and with representatives of European metropolitan regions and Member States.
The online event is organised as part of the CAMELOT (European Cities and Metropolis in Collaboration) project, founded by the European Union’s Europe for Citizens Programme. It comprises the metropolitan regions and cities of Barcelona, Bari, Craiova, Gdansk-Gdynia-Sopot, Milan, Porto, Stuttgart and Zagreb, as well as ALDA – European Association for Local Democracy.
