CoR and the European Commission (EC), under the Joint Technical Platform for Cooperation on the Environment, host the final conference of EnRoute.
EnRoute, a European Parliament Pilot project, demonstrates how EU biodiversity and green infrastructure policies and actions are being implemented in real-life case studies and policy-making processes at the local scale.
This meeting presented the main scientific and policy outcomes of EnRoute. It provided a forum for policy makers and scientists to exchange ideas of how urban green infrastructure solutions can reconcile urban growth with objectives on biodiversity quality of life and public health, adaptation to climate change, sustainable urban planning natural disaster risk reduction, etc. It considered possible next steps, such as how local knowledge co-created by science and policy can be further developed as well as disseminated to improve the quality of European cities, and how can the EU best support this process.
The summary report will be published shortly.
