    Two day joint conference on neighbourhood approaches towards local climate action

    For successful implementation of climate mitigation and adaptation strategies, it is fundamental to involve neighbourhoods and their residents. Changing perspectives from top-down to bottom-up and meeting residents eye-to-eye is key to create sustainable, long term results.

    Day 1 | How to Energize Neighbourhood Initiatives (on invitation only)

    Day 1 of the working conference focusses on ‘the Dutch Approach’ and is open to parties already deeply involved in this approach. Starting from the experiences of partner and host city of Arnhem, expert dialogue will focus on role definition, capacity building, knowledge sharing and other success factors in developing constructive partnerships with neighbourhoods and their residents.

    Day 2 | Local Climate Activities in North-West Europe (open to interested parties)

    Day 2 showcases local climate activities from Germany, United Kingdom, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Experience a versatile range of topics – from encouraging residents to take action on energy efficiency and energy poverty to financial support tools and new ways of cooperation. Enhance your understanding of local climate action via expert discussions, practitioner workshops, a guided market-place amongst others.
