Event Details

City governments operate in increasingly uncertain times. EIT Climate-KIC, EIT Urban Mobility and cirka CPH are pleased to invite city officials and transformation partners in the Nordics and Baltics for a day of learning and exchanging knowledge to understand the following:

    Faced with a pressing energy crisis, how can city teams hold perspective in leading the way towards climate resiliency? 

  • How can city teams harness the potential and momentum of new circumstances to more rapidly change city systems (energy, mobility, business service, etc.) and the ways of working?
  • What core capabilities do city teams need in order to lead in uncertainty and take innovative action?

The 1-day conference/workshop is free of charge. Secure your spot by registering today. There are spots for 40 participants:

While OECD and other international thought leaders have defined overarching capability frameworks to support systems transformation, what does this look like in practice in city governments? And what will it take to accelerate the uptake of these practices in local administrations, come Monday morning?

We call on city officials to gather for a day of learning and sharing insights that can help innovate and accelerate transformation in their everyday operating environment.

The day is held to support cities in translating systems innovation into practice, and take an active part in a growing movement of practitioners and leaders.
