City-zen Closing Event

Event Date: 
14 - 15 November 2019
Brussels, Belgium

Join City-zen on November 14-15, 2019 for the City-zen Closing Event: an inspiring conference that demonstrates how Amsterdam and Grenoble combined forces on their way to carbon neutrality.
For two half days, they will showcase and discuss the learnings that five years of City-zen have yielded. It truly is a tale of two cities: two municipalities on the brink of a societal revolution that share a mission yet embraced entirely different approaches and, consequently, arrived at different outcomes. Surrounded by a diverse audience ranging from policy makers and scientists to members of the general public, you will find that City-zen’s concrete recommendations fuel the ideal boost towards a CO2-neutral future.

Because we only have a limited amount of tickets available for this exclusive event, we would like to urge you to register a.s.a.p
