Urban Transitions Workshop II

29/11/2016, Malmö, Sweden

The City of Malmö will co-host the next Urban Transitions Workshop with Climate-KIC on 29 November at the fantastic purpose built Malmö Live centre in the heart of the city. 

The workshop is aimed at our whole urban transition community across Europe and organisations interested in becoming Climate-KIC partners will also be invited. We are looking to include both those wanting to share their experiences of delivering solutions and those who have challenges which need answers. The workshop is a practical opportunity to get inspired, to make new connections, find answers, and to actively engage in making plans to scale impact.

Workshop participants are also welcome to join Malmö City’s major international conference Sustainable City Development Conference (SCD) also being held at at Malmö Live , from 30 November  – 2 December with Climate-KIC as a co-organiser.

A morning of inspiration:
Introduction by Sean Lockie, Director Urban Transitions, Climate-KIC
LEGENDARY
The story of Malmö – hear  about one of Europe’s most celebrated urban regeneration stories first-hand and find out what is driving the city today.
VISIONARY
The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London is catalysing one of Europe’s most visionary and exciting city expansions this century. How is this smart and sustainable vision being achieved?
INSPIRATION
Presentation of the people behind start-ups or new services that are off, running, and making a positive impact.
BIG PICTURE
The global business, political, and policy trends that set the context for our work.

An afternoon of building synergy:
Three parallel tracks will see clusters of exciting projects and innovators coming together from inside and outside the European Climate-KIC community to explore synergies,  and stimulate ways to scale up the impact of our work globally. The tracks will focus on:

  • Retrofitting – solutions, business models, and funding to upgrade Europe’s stock
  • Digital decision support tools – big data analytics, visualisation, and integration to bring new insights to empower and embolden decision makers
  • Transition to low carbon mobility – tools and approaches to accelerate and inspire faster progress on cutting emissions and pollution
