METREX to host session on 27 June on Accelerating on Greening the Metropolitan City
METREX will in June host an event on Accelerating on Greening the Metropolitan City at the forthcoming World Urban Forum, the world’s largest and most important cyclical event dedicated to urban development.
The event will bring together three METREX Members – L’Institut Paris Region, Wrocław and Amsterdam – that will showcase examples under the theme of the Green City.
The Eleventh Session of the World Urban Forum 11 (WUF11) will take place at the International Congress Centre in Katowice on 26-30 June 2022.
METREX believes that Metropolitan Regions and Areas are best in place to address the challenges we face. Grounded in realistic and practical solutions, they demonstrate situational leadership on pressing issues that can accelerate the journey to finding tailored solutions.
This event will show concrete projects on policy instruments, new energies, accessible public spaces, applied circular economy approaches and hands-on tools and urban regeneration. We will discuss the principles and how to tailor them to other situations, whether situated in Europe or elsewhere.
Speaking at this event:
Jakub Mazur, 1st Deputy Mayor of Wrocław and METREX President
Henk Bouwman, Secretary General, METREX
Katarzyna Szymczak Pomianowska, Director Department for Sustainable Development Wrocław
Dagmar Keim, Senior Policymaker and Project Leader for Floriade 2022 International Exhibition Amsterdam
Paul Lecroart, Senior Urbanist, L’Institut Paris Region, leader of METREX-Eurocities Expert Group From Roads to Streets
