Summary of the event :
We intend to reinforce cooperation between urban planners on an international scale (gathered in various international associations such as ISOCARP, MTPA and P4CA) in order to enhance their common strategy to implement the NUA and help them to access green funds.
Urban and regional planners are called upon to play a strong role in advancing global climate and sustainability goals, especially by sharing and strengthening their practice and knowledge among peers.
After an intense networking first phases between all participants and an overview of their own detailed missions, the networking event will be dedicated to defining a common strategy : to strengthen their missions to implement locally the NUA, and to advocate for the inclusion of climate planning in the Green Funds goals.
