Brussels, Belgium- Sq. Marie-Louise 2 / Regional Office of Lodzkie

The 1st ENABLE Stakeholder Dialogue “Environmentally and socially just and resilient cities – What can blue and green infrastructure offer?” will provide an opportunity to share experiences on embedding green and blue infrastructure in urban planning and development and ensuring equitable distribution of the multiple benefits. The attendance for the dialogue is free of charge.

In this Stakeholder Dialogue, discussions will focus particularly on how cities can become more just from an environmental as well as societal perspective by creating and improving urban green and blue spaces. Project researchers and cities will present research findings as well as local government experiences on planning and designing urban green and blue spaces to ensure that all the citizens have access to the multiple benefits these spaces provide.

The cities of Stockholm (Sweden) and Łódź (Poland), which are also case study cities in the ENABLE project, will be presenting their experience in planning and realising green and blue spaces so as to benefit as many residents as possible. To encourage a rich and lively discussion, the project has also invited other European cities to share their own stories on municipal plans and activities on the topic. The Metropolitan City of Bologna (Italy) will explain how they are using the potential of urban agriculture as productive green infrastructure to create a more just city region.

The event will take place on 11th October 2018 from 9:30- 13:00 CET at the Regional Office of Lodzkie, Sq. Marie-Louise 2, in Brussels, Belgium.
