Climate Neutral and Smart Cities: the "building challenge" for Italian pilot cities
- Thursday, March 23, 2023
- 11:00 - 13:00
- Agorà Efficiency D5 Pav.
Organized by: K.EY with Kyoto Club and SITdA
The European Commission has chosen 100 cities from all 27 member states, as well as 12 cities from countries associated with Horizon Europe, the EU's research and innovation program (2021-2027), to participate in the "cities mission" aimed at creating smart and climate-neutral cities by 2030. These selected cities will act as demonstration and innovation hubs, working to enable all European cities to become climate neutral by 2050. In order to highlight innovative ideas and practices for achieving zero emissions in cities, particularly related to building issues, a Round Table has been organized with Italian cities participating in the "cities mission". The focus will be on the urgent need to find solutions and adopt mechanisms and plans to eliminate the consumption of fossil fuels. The authors of the "Energy Transition" Dossier from TECHNE' Journal of Technology for Architecture and Environment will also be involved in introducing the topic and challenge.
