#GMFUrban #TorinoResiliente

This event will be conducted entirely in English.

An ever growing number of cities are turning their growth and sustainability challenges into an opportunity to rethink their urban metabolism and patterns of development. Urban systems today are responsible for high substantial environmental impacts, accounting for more than 70% of the total CO2 global energy-related emissions. This phenomenon can be attributed to the complex system of the city, where materials flow in a linear way. This raises serious problems such as material depletion, enormous waste generation and climate change.

The German Marshall Fund of the United States, in partnership with the Compagnia di San Paolo and the city of Torino invite you to a presentation on the how the cities of Oakland (California) and Portland (Oregon) have rethought sustainability and urban development to achieve ambitious climate change action plans and accelerate their energy transition. The presentations will be followed by a discussion on how these transatlantic insights can inform Torino’s climate change adaption efforts.
