On 25 April, the Zero Pollution Stakeholder Platform will host a workshop on the EU Zero Pollution Action Plan Flagships 2 and 3: Towards an urban and regional scoring methodology for zero pollution.
As the number of participants in person is limited, hence participation in person will be confirmed on a first come, first serve basis following registration.
The Zero Pollution Action Plan supports urban zero pollution action (Flagship 2) and promoting zero pollution across regions (Flagship 3). Flagship 2 aims to reward cities in their effort to combat air, water, and soil pollution in the timeframe 2021-2023. Flagship 3 seeks to measure green performance of regions in reaching pollution targets, to be displayed in a scoreboard to award regions reporting the most progress in achieving the 2030 targets. The scoreboard provides the opportunity for citizens to check progress of their respective regions/cities on the path to zero pollution.
After introducing the Zero Pollution Action Plan Flagships 2 and 3 aims and way forward, the workshop’s morning sessions will focus discussions on relevant environmental themes and impacts, as well as on data availability and appropriate indicators.
The afternoon will cover the scoring concept methodology, aggregation of indicators, grouping and scoring framework, as well as allowing breakout groups to go into more detail on aspects such as scoreboard development and its visualisation.
A discussion paper, scoping the development of a Zero Pollution scoreboard for regions (Flagship 3) and gathering data on urban zero pollution action (Flagship 2), will be distributed to registered participants before the event.
