Using data in cities for the green transition

29 January 2021 @ 10:00 11:30

The European Green Deal and the recovery efforts following the COVID-19 pandemic have added impetus to the work already started in cities around the world that are pushing for more sustainable urban areas. One approach to delivering on sustainability goals that cities are beginning to utilise, is urban data platforms that allow cities to understand and adapt their urban systems relating to energy, mobility, environmental efforts and more.

This webinar presents the key lessons from a detailed study on urban data platforms across Europe and shares four best-case examples to inspire participants.
