LIVECAST: Major cities talk green recovery

  • General
  • This September Amsterdam was supposed to host the annual meeting of the Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance (CNCA), a network of 22 global cities that have committed to cutting CO2-emissions by at least 80% before 2050. Due to Covid-19 the event has been moved online and focusses on green recovery. How do the cities within the network find and create opportunities in sustainable development to stimulate employment and economic growth?

    In this public program Amsterdam alderperson Marieke van Doorninck will speak in our studio with city representatives of San Francisco, Vancouver, Copenhagen and Hamburg and other experts on how their cities are acting and adapting to the crisis. How do they combine greening the economy with other pressing urban needs, like jobs, housing and the struggle against inequality? How does the government support their efforts? And what can they learn from each other?
