About this Event

As we look at the continued re-evaluation of urban space, cities must consider how roads and sidewalks will be reshaped and pedestrianised to support green and active transportation goals.  We must also consider the redevelopment of brownfields for urban greening and nature-based solutions to urgent questions around air quality and pollution. In this roundtable, a group of urban planners, policy specialists and solutions providers will come together to answer:

  • What can cities do to promote green infrastructure in urban redevelopment?
  • What data do cities need to re-shape the built environment to be more sustainable?
  • What partnerships need to exist between public and private sectors to enable the development of a more sustainable urban environment, and how do they establish the rules of engagement?

The roundtable runs alongside the Cities Climate Action Summit which is taking place in County Hall, London (overlooking the Houses of Parliament). Each session will allow up to 15 delegates to discuss the topics in question and will be moderated by one of the SmartCitiesWorld team.
