The 10th ESDN Workshop, entitled “Fostering Urban Sustainable Development: Potentials and Challenges for National and European Policy”, took place in Brussels on 28 January 2014. The workshop was organized by the ESDN in cooperation with the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety. In total, 58 participants from 9 European countries attended the workshop.
The workshop facilitated an international exchange on overarching strategic policy initiatives on urban sustainable development at the UN, EU, Member State and sub-national level, covering environmental issues, regional development, economic and social policy fields. Accordingly, the workshop aimed to foster the exchange between experts to intensify co-operations and alliances between EU, national and local policies for urban SD. Please find below the workshop documentation, incl. the final agenda, the discussion paper, participant list, the slides of those keynoters who used PowerPoint, and a photo documentation. The workshop report will be published soon.
