The LIFE Beware project presents the webinar ”Reshaping Cities: How Urban Areas Can Tackle Climate Change”|March 29th, 2022 16:00 – 17:30
As part of The Nature of Cities Festival, a 3-day virtual event (29th – 31st of March 2022) that pushes the boundaries of radically imagining our cities for the future, the LIFE Beware project will actively participate on the 29th of March by holding the webinar “Reshaping Cities:How Urban Areas Can Tackle Climate Change”.
The seed session will focus on the topic of Cities’ resilience to Climate Change and, thanks to the contribution of four projects, it will highlight various ways and best practices in which urban areas can successfully address this issue, in an innovative way.
In the first part of the session the speakers will share the experience of Life Beware and the development of a participatory territorial process. In the second one, with the contribution of three other LIFE projects, participants will be able to know the best practices developed within these projects and how they successfully impacted the territory. The whole session will be held by a facilitator and the second part will be more interactive.
