Lisbon, a founding member of the Atlantic Cities is Europe’s Green Capital for 2020. Its green and blue urban strategies were paramount in the wining proposal that convinced the jury in 2018.
Today Europe’s Green Capital has its own virtual agenda.
While the events do not return to the streets of Lisbon, you can learn and participate in themes related to the environment even when you are at home. There are suggestions for talks, interviews, workshops and festivals for May.
For instance, an Instagram chat on sustainable food, an international meeting on Europe’s Climate Pact or even exchanges about sea and land.
Moreover, Fernando Medina, Lisbon’s mayor and leader of the Portuguese delegation at the Committee of the Regions is working inside the selective C40 network of cities in order to identify suitable urban solutions against the effects of the covid-19 pandemic.
