The Challenge

The Latina event will result in an intense national day of meetings in order to stimulate a debate within the community with the active participation of stakeholders. The aim is to define innovative local strategies for mitigation and adaptation to climate change and reflect on the opportunities for development and economic and employment consequences that may ensue. The day is structured in a plenary session in the morning and thematic round tables in the afternoon.

Latina is a city of about 126,000 inhabitants, and lies in the region of Lazio (central Italy). It is seat of the Province of Latina, and is the only city in the center-south Italy to have joined the Climathon. In 2012 the city joined the Covenant of Mayors committing to reduce its CO2 emissions by 2020, drafting and implementing the Sustainable Energy Action Planla recently approved by the European Commission. The event will result in an intense day, aimed at stimulating a debate within the community with the active participation of local stakeholders. The aim is to define innovative local strategies for mitigation and adaptation to climate change, and reflect on the opportunities for local development and the employment opportunities. The day is structured in a plenary session in the morning and thematic round tables in the afternoon.
