    Under the heading of “Green Transition”, this workshop titled “WEF Nexus for Green Transition in Europe: Towards a Low-Carbon Economy in Europe” will bring together diverse stakeholders to highlight the relevance of the Nexus concept for the green transition of Europe in line with EU cohesion policy. The workshop will highlight the role of the Nexus in supporting policy coherence and integration in the context of the European Green Deal to make Europe climate neutral by 2050, helping turn climate and environmental challenges into opportunities and making the transition just and inclusive for all.

    The workshop is expected to contribute to the efforts to fill the knowledge and outcome gap by better connecting with decision-makers and resource managers, emphasising participatory approaches, and contributing to capacity building.


    The European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek) is the biggest annual Brussels-based event dedicated to cohesion policy. It has grown to become a unique communication and networking platform, bringing together regions and cities from all over Europe, including politicians, administrators, experts and academics. Over the last 19 years, it has promoted policy learning and the exchange of good practices.
