Nature Smart Cities & Cool Towns
Annual Exchange of Experience Event


14:00 - 17:00 CET, Thursday 19th November 2020

 

On the afternoon of the 19th November, the Interreg 2 Seas Nature Smart Cities and Cool Towns projects will be jointly hosting a free exchange of experience event. The event provides an opportunity to learn more about these two exciting projects, which together, work to build climate resilience across European cities and towns. The Nature Smart Cities project is working to develop an innovative Business Model which will help cities and towns to make the case for Green Infrastructure solutions, over more traditional, grey approaches. The Cool Towns project focuses on finding attractive solutions to adapt small and medium sized cities to the heat-related effects of climate change through interventions in spatial development and urban design in public and private space The full programme for the event is attached. To register for this free event click here:  https://www.trybooking.co.uk/VRK List of presentations and speakers:
