CANCELLED/ Policy Lab for Slovenia: unravelling the 'green' actions of the Urban Agenda for the EU

The event has been canceled due to the Coronavirus outbreak, stay tuned to discover the upcoming activities planned for Slovenia.

On 8 April 2020 the EUKN will organise a Policy Lab in Ljubljana together with the Slovene Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning. It will specifically investigate in what way the Urban Agenda for the EU (UAEU) process can be harvested with a view to the theme of environmental sustainability.

To do so, the EUKN Secretariat is developing an approach for the analysis of the ‘green’ actions of the UAEU that call for the involvement of Member States and the EU level. The approach is based, inter alia, on the clustering exercise performed by the 2019 Finnish Council Presidency and DG REGIO. During the Policy Lab, the results of applying this approach to three selected actions will be showcased and discussed.

The goal of the event is to explore how the suggested analysis approach could enhance the engagement of Member States and the EU level in the further implementation of the actions delivered by the Partnerships. It will be the start of a series of EUKN activities for Slovenia in the run-up to the Presidency in 2021 – eventually leading to concrete recommendations on how to foster those actions dealing with regulatory obstacles faced by cities when trying to reach environmental goals.

More information will soon be available on the EUKN website
