Joint organiser: OECD

This event will explore the role of National Urban Policies (NUPs) in the implementation of the New Leipzig Charter. It will examine how NUPs’ role plays out in practice and how it could be strengthened in the future, focusing on the green transition. It marks an important milestone in the cooperation between the EUKN and the OECD, which began in June 2021 with the EUKN-OECD Week of NUPs.

Representatives from EUKN members Germany and Slovenia presented their experiences, sharing city perspectives and exploring principles for strengthening environmental sustainability.
