This webinar, jointly organised with the French National Agency for Territorial Cohesion (ANCT), will take place on 26 January 2021. Focusing on the global impact and local effects of mega-trends on port cities, the webinar for France is part of the EUKN ‘Thinking Beyond the Crisis’ series.

The webinar will offer a learning platform to share experiences and reflect on the changing role of port cities as a result of global mega-trends and their local effects, including the recent yet far-reaching impacts of COVID-19. It will facilitate knowledge sharing on both global and local challenges and strategies of port cities towards a more sustainable future, in socioeconomic and environmental terms. Presentations by port city representatives from Le Havre, Rotterdam, Incheon, and Hamburg, will be followed by European and international experts’ commentaries, and Q&A sessions with participants.

The goal will be to generate evidence on territorial impacts and their consequences for the sustainable development of ports, port cities ant their hinterlands.

The webinar will take place on Zoom, with interpretation in English and French available.
