UE online workshop to discover the VEG-GAP project, enrolment within September 27

"The best vegetation for improving outdoor thermal comfort and air quality in cities" is the title of the workshop that will be held on Wednesday, October 22, through the platform Zoom, as part of the 2020 edition of the European Week of Regions and Cities, the biggest annual event dedicated to regional policies, organized by the European Union.

The workshop explains to the public and specialists how the EU LIFE project VEG GAP platform’s atmospheric modelling systems can provide useful information on the links between vegetation, temperature and air pollution to develop effective control strategies to maintain and improve air quality in European cities.

Experts will showcase the new tools and discuss the current local understanding of vegetation's effects on the pilot cities: Bologna, Madrid and Milan.

The public will be then invited to interact with the speakers and also to provide inputs to improve the platform.

To sign in for the workshop (with the EU login, at this address https://europa.eu/regions-and-cities/programme/sessions/1254_en ) there is time until September 27 but, since the number of participants is limited, the invitation is to sign in as soon as possible. Workshop partner, which will be held in English from 11.30 to 13, is the Metropolitan City of Bologna.
