POCACITO FINAL CONFERENCE
DATE │ FRIDAY, 21 OCTOBER 2016. 10.00 - 16.30 followed by reception
LOCATION │ CEPS, PLACE DU CONGRÈS 1
It is our pleasure to announce the Final Conference of the European Union's 7th Framework Programme project POCACITO. The event will take an interactive format, and will bring together EU stakeholders to discuss how to make post-carbon cities a reality.
The conference will present our experience in developing long term strategies with stakeholders through visioning and backcasting workshops. We will present the results of the project, as well as a high level document or ‘roadmap’ to achieve by 2050 liveable post-carbon cities, i.e. economically robust, environmentally resilient, providing high quality of life and socially inclusive. Many decisions today will shape longer term paths. It is important that decisions in the next ten years are aligned to targets beyond 2050. Path dependency has powerful implications, and decisions today will shape the cities of tomorrow. Out of the box concepts are thus welcome, even more so if the link to possible implementation paths is also made explicit.
We hope to see many of you on 21 October!
