EUKN Webinar: The Urban Agenda for the EU, its ‘green’ actions and the European Green Deal

18 March, 2021 @ 1:00 pm 4:30 pm

Slovenia will hold the EU Council Presidency in the second half of 2021. In this context, two EUKN Policy Labs organised for Slovenia in 2020 unravelled the ‘green’ actions of the Urban Agenda for the EU, with a focus on Better Regulation. The next EUKN webinar in this Policy Lab series builds on the findings of these two events and develops them further.

The first part of the webinar will explore the urban dimension of the European Green Deal in order to strengthen the linkages with the Urban Agenda for the EU, positioning the ‘green’ actions in the wider political debate and institutional context.

The second part will build upon the 2020 EUKN Policy Labs for Slovenia and address their key findings, particularly in the fields of the Circular Economy, Nature-Based Solutions, and the Better Regulation strand of the Urban Agenda for the EU. The goal of this Policy Lab is to contribute to concrete messages that will be presented to ministers under Slovenia’s Presidency on how to support cities dealing with regulatory obstacles when trying to reach environmental goals.
