Almost all cities involved in the Viable Cities program Climate Neutral Cities 2030 have a higher education institution. They provide highly relevant research and education at different levels. But in what other ways do they contribute to the climate transition and what could they do more of? During this climate breakfast, we explore how higher education institutions can accelerate their contribution to the climate transition, including through collaboration in new ways.

How can the carbon budget serve as a common framework for society's different actors, where we control our cumulative emissions and keep them within a common carbon budget? This was one of the questions we asked ourselves in the Vinnova-funded innovation project Carbon budgets as a framework for a coordinated climate transition. Now, the project participants would like to invite you to a final conference to discuss the project results with you.

Just transition means greening the economy in a way that is as fair and inclusive as possible for all concerned, creating decent work opportunities and leaving no one behind. It means meeting climate targets by ensuring that all of society - all communities, all workers, all social groups - are involved in the climate transition.

Climate change investments can create both business opportunities and a more sustainable city. Research shows that climate investments can generate significant benefits, both direct economic benefits and added benefits such as jobs, cleaner air and better health. Within the work with roadmaps as part of Climate City Contract 2030, the cities in the Climate Neutral Cities 2030 initiative work with climate investments and climate investment plans. During this Climate Breakfast, we dive into what it means to make climate investments and how climate investment plans take shape.
