Webinar : Co-creation of climate action and adaptation support tools by local governments and researchers
Jeudi 17 janvier 11:00-12:30
City leaders and practitioners across Europe are rethinking their policy programmes and setting up new initiatives to adapt to the impacts of climate change. But local climate adaptation is a complex policy area requiring diverse forms of knowledge – not just from scientists, but also from citizens, business, civil society organisations and staff in many municipal departments. This means trialling approaches which go beyond ‘business as usual’, to incorporate local knowledge into scientific research, and in turn to apply new knowledge effectively in decision-making.
In this webinar, municipal staff and researchers from Slovakia, Germany and the United Kingdom will share their experiences working together to co-create tools and methods supporting action for local climate adaptation – in particular for assessing risk, and for selecting and prioritising adaptation measures.

Remunicipalisation of the local energy supply
From 28 February to 1 March 2019, Ettlingen, Germany
A 2-day workshop organised by Energy Cities and the city of Ettlingen, in the framework of the Interreg NWE HeatNet project
Inspired by remunicipalisation initiatives all over Europe, an increasing number of local authorities are expanding their role, no longer simply acting as planning authorities but becoming operational stakeholders and driving forces for the local energy transition. New integrated municipal companies are increasingly being set up.
This workshop, for elected members and municipal technicians, will present concrete examples from different EU countries to show how energy supply can be managed or owned by local authorities. It will provide a lot of space for small group work and peer-to-peer exchange.
