The CITIES FORUM 2020 and INNOMED-UP participation, Porto, Portugal
The 4th edition of the CITIES Forum took place in Porto, on the 30-31 January 2020, in a former-customs house-turned-congress centre on the bank of the Douro river. The 600+ registered participants showed up to the two-day event, packed with initiatives and discussions on shaping a sustainable urban future for European cities.
The CITIES Forum is a major biennial event organised by the European Commission, which brings together key stakeholders from European, national and local levels to debate the progress of the Urban Agenda for the EU, the urban dimension of Cohesion Policy as well as the EU response to the urban dimension of the 2030 Agenda and the New Urban Agenda.
Our INNOMED-UP project partner - the Municipality of Prato in Italy - introduced the circular economy at city level, at the Final event of the Urban Agenda Partnership on Circular Economy at the Cities Forum 2020.
