【NL】Green Cities Conference 29 June at Floriade Expo 2022

From European, national and urban goals to their realisation in practice: how can we use green cities to contribute to SDGs, the Green Deal, and other climate and livability goals? During this conference, we will briefly look at the scientifically proven effects of trees and plants on heat, water, health, air quality and biodiversity. Then, various institutions and companies will present us with progressive, but feasible and realised example projects. The aim of the conference is to clearly outline the task and then to inspire with concrete, proven solutions.

  • Location:Congress Pavilion, Floriade Expo 2022, Amsterdam – Almere.
