This webinar will showcase examples from European Green Capital Network members that have used sustainable mobility, green spaces, co-housing initiatives and more to develop human-scale cities – people-centred places of advanced social progress, which often combine urban density with abundant public spaces and nature-rich areas. Participants will hear about Vitoria-Gasteiz' (Basque Country, Spain) experiences with creative design to build new superblocks and green spaces in and around the city, Essen's (Germany) project to connect green spaces and waterways through walking and cycling networks, and Strasbourg's (France) co-housing initiative.
