We are organizing 2 sessions, and partnering for a day at the Sustainability Arena at Teaterskeppet. We look forward to the sessions that have broad representation from political leaders in cities, key actors from national government agencies, the European Commission and our sister program in Spain CitiES2030. Together we accelerate the transition to Climate Neutral Cities 2030!
In Sweden and in Europe, cities are mobilising for the Climate Neutral Cities 2030 mission. The transition requires new forms of multi-level governance and cooperation between local, national and European levels. How can we further accelerate the transition to climate-neutral cities?
The EU's mission to mobilize cities to become climate-neutral cities by 2030 is gaining momentum at several levels: local, national and across Europe. The mission is an important part of the European Green Deal, which aims to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. In the Viable Cities initiative, 23 Swedish cities and six national government agencies mobilize in cooperation with academia, business and civil society and other European initiatives in line with the mission. In Europe, over 100 cities are mobilizing and more and more national and EU initiatives are emerging across Europe. What is going on in Europe, in Sweden and locally, and how can we further accelerate the transition to climate-neutral cities while creating competitiveness and a good life for all?

In Sweden and Europe, many are mobilizing based on the mission of climate-neutral cities by 2030 and the mission of climate adaptation. The UN Climate Panel and others point to the need to integrate climate change mitigation and adaptation. How can we in practice work in a more integrated way with climate change and climate adaptation?
Within Viable Cities, 23 Swedish cities and six national government agencies in cooperation with academia, business and society and other European initiatives are mobilizing in line with the mission Climate Neutral Cities 2030. The EU mission on climate neutral cities 2030 is simultaneously gaining momentum at several levels; at local level, national level and across Europe. A related mission is mobilizing for climate adaptation and involves a large number of cities and regions. The UN Climate Panel, the Swedish Expert Council for Climate Change Adaptation and others point to the need to integrate climate change mitigation and adaptation for greater impact in the efforts made. How can we integrate the work on climate change adaptation and climate change mitigation in practice? What is being done today, and how can we further accelerate the transition to climate-neutral cities while adapting society to a changing climate and creating competitiveness and a good life for all?

How do Climate City Contract and climate initiatives across Sweden work together to achieve the climate goals as quickly and efficiently as possible? Sweden's entrepreneurs and municipalities are boiling with commitment to the climate issue, how do we better utilize the strength of the collective amount of initiatives?
Sweden's entrepreneurs and municipalities are boiling with commitment to the climate issue. At present, we count 23 municipalities that have signed a climate contact with Viable Cities, with the goal of climate neutrality by 2030. At least as many local/regional climate initiatives broadly engage regions, cities, academia, private/public clients and suppliers in local/regional test beds. With a common goal of climate neutrality, there is a good basis for collaboration. When climate initiatives and Climate City Contract complement each other, we have a greater chance of achieving the common climate goals more quickly. Take part in a dialogue on how we can make even better use of the strength of the combined amount of climate initiatives and Climate City Contract. Get concrete tools on how your region, municipality or city can join the collaboration and accelerate your climate work.
