Cities are at the forefront of the global carbon revolution, breaking established structures and creating new models for integrated systems. At an official side-event at COP21 in Paris, members of the POCACITO project consortium discussed how cities, serving as hubs of knowledge and learning, are essential catalysts in the global transformation to a post-carbon society. The side-event entitled, "Post-Carbon Cities as Drivers for Decarbonisation," took place on Monday, 7 December 2015, from 12:15-13:00 in the afternoon at the EU Pavilion (Blue Zone, Hall2B, Room 'Luxembourg') and was co-hosted by the Emerging Leaders in Environmental and Energy Policy (ELEEP) Network.
