ISOCARP Institute hosted an Urban Lab Session “Championing Local Green Deals” that took place on July 16th, 2021. This event was coordinated and facilitated by ISOCARP Institute and was part of the 3-day Urban Thinker Campus “A Local Green Deal”, organized by Studieninstitut Rhein-Neckar (Mannheim, Germany). This Urban Lab Session aimed at reflecting on actionable and short-term interventions to foster the implementation of Local Green Deals.
The programme started with brief presentations to inspire the audience and provide exemplary experiences and approaches at different urban scales and from different contexts. Moreover, ISOCARP Institute launched a Call for Contributors, where city representatives, practitioners, industry partners, or community members can share their stories and suggest possible solutions.
