Ahead of the G20 Ministerial Meeting on Environment, Climate and Energy to be held in Naples on July 22-23, the Embassy and Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Italy and the CMCC Foundation – Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) organize a webinar to explore how Italy and the Netherlands are rethinking their cities to be future-proof.

The meeting aims at creating a dialogue between policy and science in order to understand the connection between sustainability, resilience, health and prosperity. It will highlight best practices in terms of resilience and circular economy of the cities of Amsterdam and Milan. It fits perfectly in the framework of the Italian Presidency of the G20, where the Netherlands have been invited as guest country.

The event will explore how we can mitigate the impact of climate change and thrive in balance with the planet in order to create inclusive, safe, resilient and circular cities in line with the UN 2030 Agenda’s 11th Goal for Sustainable Development. Experts from the CMCC Foundation, the municipalities of Amsterdam and Milan, and the Dutch consultancy Metabolic will expose and share their visions and discuss opportunities for further collaboration on these themes between the Netherlands and Italy.
