Mr Cooper (UK/EA) rapporteur of the CoR Opinion on "Climate governance after 2020: a European and global perspective – a contribution to the UNFCCC COP24" participates to the 2018 Climate Alliance International Conference.
"Connecting Cities ‒ Local Solutions for Global Challenges" is the main theme of this year conference taking place 1–3 October 2018 in Barcelona, Spain.
We are more interconnected today than ever before. Taking full advantage of this fact in our cities and towns will help us face an array of pressing challenges. Together, we can better decouple our production and consumption systems from natural resource depletion while tackling climate change, enhancing resilience, easing social tensions and diminishing financial instability. Our cities and towns are already co-creating solutions to these challenges. Every day, local authorities are implementing innovative approaches to governance that facilitate new coalitions and networks for more just, sustainable and resilient societies.
Connecting Cities strengthens network-based approaches to global challenges by connecting local and regional authorities from across Europe. Together, we can transform challenges into solutions!
