MASTERCLASS FOR CITIES: MAKING CLIMATE INVESTMENT PLANS
100 European cities have been selected to join EU’s mission: “100 Climate-neutral and smart cities by 2030”, and many more are committing to the same goal.
Getting to climate neutrality will require significant investments in infrastructure and innovation. The City Climate Investment Plan Masterclass will tackle questions like
- How do you make an investment plan that extends beyond what the city owns?
- How can you get buy-in for such a plan from relevant actors both outside and inside the city administration?
- What would a suitable investment plan process look like?
- What are the requirements from the EU mission?
- How can you assure that you are making the right investments?
- What is the sourcing scope?
- How do you follow up and improve?
We have invited a group of experienced and knowledgeable professionals from different organizations that will help us to try to get some answers to these questions. The Masterclass is directed towards city administration professionals and related actors.
Time: June 15th, 14.00 – 17.00, Boat dinner 18.00
Place: Clarion Hotel Sea U, Helsingborg, Sweden
Maximum Capacity: 50 people
