A policy dialogue named "The case of Zaragoza: Context and challenges on urban policy towards Climate Neutrality and multi-level governance” will be held during the second day of NEUTRALPATH project meeting.
The first NEUTRALPATH event dedicated to Policy Dialogue is set to take place on the 5th of October 2023. The first city to host the policy discussion is Zaragoza, one of the two project cities’ frontrunners in the implementation of their PCED and also part of the 100 EU Mission Cities.
The goal of the policy discussion is to present the city’s ambitions and work on urban policies related to climate neutrality, urban governance good practices, challenges and approaches to multi-level governance with regional and national governments, the EU, and other key stakeholders.
The event organized by EUROCITIES will provide a platform for experts, public authorities and stakeholders to discuss the difficulties and possibilities associated with policy-level cooperation in the context of urban development.
EUROCITIES will kick off the event by providing an insightful session on the context and difficulties associated with policy-level collaboration. The city of Zaragoza will be at the forefront of the discussion sharing local best practices for urban policy towards sustainable city planning. The event will feature insights from CitiES, a leading initiative by Climate-KIC focusing on multi-level and multi-stakeholder collaboration. At the end, a session will be dedicated to open discussions, and everyone will have the opportunity to share their perspectives on the topic.
During the session, the Zaragoza municipality representatives will present Zaragoza’s political commitment to climate neutrality as Mission City, the Climate City Contract process, the city’s good policy practices in terms of climate action, policy-related challenges and multi-level governance collaboration in place. A representative from Climate-KIC will join the discussion presenting the Spanish Collaboration Platform for Climate Neutrality of Spanish Cities, as a collaborative tool among governments and key stakeholders showcasing multi-level governance in the Spanish context.
After the presentation, a Q&A discussion will allow the participants, especially from the other cities, to ask for details, comment, and add insights from their own policy contexts.
