Blue-green event

21st of April, 2021 (In English)

In April 2001, the EcoCity Augustenborg was inaugurated and during the following 20 years it has been the inspiration for social sustainability and storm water management for people all over the world.

On April 21st, 2021, as a part of the 20-year Anniversary festivities, we are hosting a digital blue-green day catching up on interesting initiatives/projects from different cities in Europe. We all face the challenges of climate change and densification. Can we learn from each other? What needs and functions do your project results address?

Each talk is short, 10-15 min/speaker so that we have time to hear about many great, inspiring projects. The event is free of charge, and the number of participants is limited to 500 people. The event is held in English.

Please see the program below.

Please note that the number of places is limited so first come, first served.
