EBRD Green Cities helps to improve the lives of millions of people – by investments ranging from increasing access to water, upgrading public transport or improving the sustainability of the city’s energy system.
Alongside resilience provided by sustainable infrastructure, the event will explore how cities can learn from and support one another in times of crisis. Bringing citizen voices into the room, citizens from three of the programme’s Green Cities will tell their stories and engage with a panel of decision makers and city thought leaders.
Broadcasting live from several of EBRD’s Green Cities, citizens will link their local context to the global one, reflecting on both personal and community resilience. Their questions to the panel will ask how governments can support their citizens in difficult times to create ‘sustainable cities’ in the fullest sense.
This is a hybrid event taking place in-person at the EBRD Annual Meeting in Marrakesh, Morocco and streamed live to and from our countries of operation. The audience and panel will be invited into the homes, businesses and project sites of EBRD’s Green Cities through a combination of pre-recorded video and live contributions.
