Urban adaptation to Climate Change | Rue Belliard 99 | donderdag, 25. april 2019

The European urban context faces new issues related to Climate change such as record-breaking heatwaves, pollution peaks, erosion of natural resources, etc. A number of solutions to fight against climate change and mitigate it in the best conditions are thought out locally, at municipal level. Issues and presentation of local solutions are the subject of this conference. From the integration of Nature-based solutions to food self-sufficiency initiatives, from Water, Air and Soil Strategies to Environment & Health policies…What are the concrete schemes to make cities and urban areas more resilient? How to ensure tomorrow’s climate stabilisation in the field? What are the levers at metropolitan scale? How does Europe support cities to face these major issues in the best conditions?
While Lille Metropole is currently revising its local Climate and Energy Plan and is on the eve of becoming World Design Capital in 2020, this conference will be an opportunity to highlight initiatives co-designed with citizens and implemented with them.
In the presence of Elena VISNAR-MALINOVSKA, Head of Adaptation Unit at the European Commission DG CLIMA, and Nicolas BEETS, Dutch Special Urban Envoy for the Urban Agenda of the EU, concrete case studies of Lille Metropole, Genoa, Antwerp and Brussels will be presented.
