Webinar - How cities are promoting gender equality in times of COVID
The COVID-19 pandemic has upended our societies and forced us to change how we do business, govern and interact with one another. The crisis has also magnified inequalities and vulnerabilities within our societies.
That’s why the the CEMR Standing Committee for Equality is organising a one-hour online seminar to take stock of how COVID-19 has impacted gender policies at local and regional level in Europe. Join us to discover practical case studies of how municipal authorities are taking action.
IUC Final City-to-City Event
Since 2017, cities and subnational regions from across the world have been brought together via the IUC programme. All participating cities gather once per year for a global knowledge-sharing City-to-City event. On 3 December 2020, for the first time, the IUC programme is extending City-to-City event participation to all interested persons, cities and sustainability leaders.
This event will be an opportunity to reflect on the progress made by IUC cities and regions, including celebrating successes, understanding challenges faced, and collectively discovering solutions to overcome them.
Water in the city Seminar
The seminar will present design options for both new and existing quarters, thus emuhering the variety of solutions for climate-adapted infrastructures in different districts and urban planning types. A building block classification facilitates the selection of options for rainwater management and the use of grey and operating water at the various levels of the city. In addition, participatory planning processes are presented, which are suitable for different actors to optimally implement the additional values of climate-adapted infrastructures for the development of an apartment block, a quarter or an entire city.
Call for ideas - 40th Euroheat & Power Congress
We don’t think we can have an event that’s all about “FORWARD TOGETHER” and innovating the district energy sector without amazing trailblazing ideas and entrepreneurial spirit to change the world. That’s why we're planning again for a "Pitch your Idea – Take a Risk – Change the World" session on Tuesday 4th May 2021.
Submit your fresh, forward-thinking ideas and topics for the programme you need at #21EHPcong... Simply click ‘HERE’ to begin.

Virtual CNU 29.Design for Change
CNU 29.Design for Change will focus on the intersection between design and power. The power design holds to influence the way we live, to physically change and adapt the spaces we inhabit, as well as how we can use it to achieve the change we want to see in neighborhoods, towns, cities, and across regions. More than that, design is a tool that empowers neighborhood residents to imagine and create the places they want. In a rapidly changing world, design can create more resilient and just places as easily as it can contribute to deepening gaps.

"Internationalisation of metropolitan spaces" webinar
The recent evolution of the international action of local governments contemplates simultaneous phenomena, such as the exponential growth of their international activism, the change of focus in how they insert themselves in the world, no longer only as cooperation actors (donors or beneficiaries) but as actors of the global agenda in all its expressions, and the change in the ways and means of relating with foreign countries. Gradually, internationalisation has gained its space within the institutional, political, and territorial objectives of local administrations, turning into strategic action and finally into public policy.
Based on the Issue paper of the Metropolis Observatory "Internationalisation of metropolitan spaces", Metropolis and "Proyecto AL-LAs" offer a webinar to provide tools to local governments on how to construct a strategic public policy of international action at the metropolitan level.
KeepWarm‘s online International Inspire Event
Keeping our cities sustainably warm: Inspiring the Efficient Renewal of District Heating for the Just Transition
Thursday 12 November, 2020
ONLINE EVENT, 9:00 - 16:00 CET
Join us on Thursday 12 November from 9h - 16h00 CET, as we come together for an inspiring virtual event to wrap up the KeepWarm story.

It features high-level speakers representing local to European institutions to discuss DH’s crucial role in contributing to a Just Transition, Green Recovery and climate/energy goals. The ultimate purpose of this e-event is to foster interactive dialogue which helps to scale up implementation through the strategic acceleration of policy and financial frameworks which suitably support DH retrofits.
Mobilising Mobility workshop
Mobilising Mobility: Like two peas in a pod - Digital Twins for urban planning
Cities are on the lookout for innovative clean freight solutions. The rise of an on-demand economy and the “uberisation” of urban logistics together with the mission of becoming climate-neutral paves the way for innovative solutions.
This is where Digital Twins come in: this is a digital replica of a complex real-world urban environment and represents different processes, actors and their interaction(s).
In addition to setting the context and bringing clarity to this complex concept, this webinar will showcase trailblazing initiatives that are evidence of its potential for more sustainable urban mobility planning. The webinar is promoted by LEAD, an H2020 project, that will create Digital Twins of urban logistics networks in six cities to support experimentation and decision-making with on-demand logistics operations in a public-private urban setting.

Eurocities annual conference 2020
Reinventing cities – beyond the urban crises
Our very first online Eurocities annual conference and AGM will take place on 4 and 5 November.
It is happening at a time when a new reality is taking shape in cities, in Europe and globally. Cities have been the hardest hit by the pandemic as well as the social and economic consequences. It is also in cities that the urgency of dealing with other major challenges such as climate change stands out very clearly.
In the face of competing crises, what can city leaders do to set a new course? How can we reshape the city to match new needs? In the aftermath of the corona pandemic, the daily functioning of the city as we know it is challenged.
