Can data bridge the gap to greener cities?

19/06/2024, 14:15 - 15:45

How can we harness data across global, local and regional governments to create smarter, greener cities? We’re bringing together experienced practitioners from diverse regions who have found success replicating successful projects aligned with national goals. Our focus at this workshop will be on using data from climate action, how to overcome hurdles in data access, and leveraging smart technologies for local climate action. Together we’ll explore how data-driven tools can guide sustainable urban planning, with special attention paid to regional requirements and differences.
