For this edition, the EUKN will be present in three sessions: 

National Urban Policies: drivers for the implementation of the New Leipzig Charter - 12 October (11:30-13:00 CEST). Co-organised by the EUKN and the OECD, this event will explore the role of National Urban Policies (NUP) in the implementation of the New Leipzig Charter, examining how it plays out in practice and how it could be strengthened in the future, centred around the green transition. This event will mark an important milestone for the cooperation of the two organisations, started last June with the EUKN-OECD Week of NUPs. Register here.

Green transition in cities as an example of Europe's legacy from WUF11 in Poland - 14 October (9:30-11:00 CEST). For this workshop, the Polish Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy and the EUKN will join forces to explore how to move towards a green transition for European cities, and how they can actively participate and contribute to the European legacy of World Urban Forum 11. Register here.

Delivering the EU Green Deal through Circular Procurement - 14 October (11:30-13:00 CEST). The event will help procurement specialists, policymakers and other stakeholders understand how public procurement can accelerate local and regional transitions towards a circular economy. Register here.
