ENABLE Stakeholder Dialogue #1 Environmentally and socially just and resilient cities – What can blue and green infrastructure offer?
This ENABLE Stakeholder Dialogue will bring together participants from cities, regions and organisations working on green and blue infrastructure with the project’s researchers and cities. The aim is to share experiences and discuss how cities can become more just from an environmental as well as societal perspective through creating and improving urban green and blue spaces. A preliminary agenda is available here.
|Event location||Regional Office of Lodzkie Sq. Marie-Louise 2 1000 Brussels, Belgium|

The ENABLE project invites cities to present their experiences on the topic of the dialogue event. Cities interested to speak for 10-15 minutes, are invited to fill in the application form for one of the two speaking slots by the 19th of September 2018. We will get back to the speakers selected by the ENABLE consortium by the 26th of September 2018. If you have any questions regarding the application, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why attend the ENABLE Stakeholder Dialogue? You can:
- Meet local government representatives and researchers from across Europe working together on making cities greener and bluer,
- Explore how to strike a balance in creating environmentally sustainable and socially desirable green and blue spaces in cities,
- Hear about ways to ensure access to the many benefits green and blue spaces provide from real urban case studies, and
- Get to know and share city experiences towards more just and resilient green and blue cityscapes by applying for one of the two speaking slots for city representatives.
The project “Enabling Green and Blue Infrastructure Potential in Complex Social-Ecological Regions” (ENABLE) is studying how green and blue infrastructure can be designed and implemented to best deliver numerous social and environmental benefits, such as social inclusion, health and human wellbeing, storm water retention and habitat functions. ENABLE uses a transdisciplinary approach to investigate the role of green and blue infrastructure in tackling a range of socio-ecological challenges cities are facing.
ENABLE is exploring possible green and blue infrastructure solutions to urban challenges in the metropolitan regions of Halle (Germany), Barcelona (Spain), Łódź (Poland), Stockholm (Sweden) and Oslo (Norway), while also exchanging with the City of New York (US).
