On Wednesday 29th of September 2021, from 9:30 to 13:00, it took place the event “The Carbon Neutral Cities: from buzz to action”.

The meeting has been an opportunity to reflect on policies and tools for adaptation and mitigation to fight climate change and to develop Carbon Neutral Cities.

The event has been hence an opportunity to share the experiences and projects of the City of Milan. It has been an occasion to propose them as models to other international and national urban areas, in terms of the tools used and engagement processes developed for citizens, real estate operators and decision-makers. Furthermore, one of the key objective of the initiative has also been the one to contribute in the definition of a series of notes on the “lessons learned”, in terms of the development of Carbon Neutral and Smart cities. This has been possible thanks to the attendance of international guests, representing both organizations and networks of diverse climate-active cities.

The works took place partly in Italian and partly in English.

The video of the morning is available on the Poliedra Youtube channel here, and we have created a drive folder here with all the materials and presentations used during the morning.

The event is part of the ALL4Climate-Italy2021, the initiative launched by the Italian Ministry for Ecological Transition in collaboration with the World Bank Group’s Connected4Climate and with the participation of the Lombardy Region and the Municipality of Milan.
