International Transport Forum

Governance of Transport

Leipzig, Germany
The ITF’s 2017 Summit on Governance of Transport will explore the trends shaping transport governance and identify the most pressing challenges in the transport sector. Through the governance lens, it will focus on infrastructure, global connectivity, the right regulation for innovation, and urban access and mobility.

Transport governance affects decisions regarding everything from local cycle paths to global trade routes. The governance framework both responds to and shapes decision-making and policies addressing inter alia environmental and climate considerations, working conditions, accessibility, and technical solutions, as well as organisational and financial challenges for the sector that are in constant flux. Important factors in this include legislative and regulatory frameworks, attribution and devolution of responsibilities between different levels of authority and across sectors and involvement of stakeholders.

The Annual Summit of the International Transport Forum is the premier global transport policy event. Since 2008, the Summit brings together ministers from around the world to share policy perspectives with CEOs, heads of international organisations, thought leaders from civil society and academia, and the media. This vibrant conference addresses strategic and topical issues across all transport modes where participants can engage in the debate through a variety of session formats.

3rd European Climate Change Adaptation Conference

Our Climate Ready Future

Glasgow, United Kingdom
The theme of ECCA 2017 is ‘Our Climate Ready Future’. Our vision is that this conference will inspire and enable people to work together to discover and deliver positive climate adaptation solutions that can strengthen society, revitalise local economies and enhance the environment. We will bring together the people who will deliver action on the ground – from business, industry, NGOs, local government and communities – to share knowledge, ideas and experience with researchers and policymakers. Set in the cultural city of Glasgow, at the heart of a city-region that is putting climate adaptation and climate justice at the core of decision-making, ECCA 2017 offers a unique opportunity to visit many innovative local adaptation projects and share experience of how climate adaptation can work in practice.

Visualizing Energy

Photo Exhibition

Brussels, Belgium

The public information campaign Visualizing Energy highlights the human dimension of the energy transition, showcasing workers in action on renewable energy and energy efficiency projects around Europe and beyond. The aim is to raise awareness among citizens and policy-makers of the potential of green growth.

ICLEI will contribute to the exhibition with pictures from our Members, who are paving the way towards smarter, more resilient cities: Freiburg (Germany), Cascais (Portugal), Stockholm (Sweden), and Umeå (Sweden).

One picture depicts Lisa Enarsson, Assistant Project Manager for the smart city project GrowSmarter from the City of Stockholm. Ms Enarsson believes that renewable energies will create cleaner, more livable cities.

Ana Rodrigues, from Cascais Ambiente (Portugual), is pictured working with children. "Through my energy education work in local schools, I am shaping the city planners of tomorrow,” said Ms Rodrigues. Cascais is part of the THERMOS project.

A picture from Freiburg shows the production process of photovoltaic modules in the M10 Solar Campus.

The last picture sees Carina Aschan from Umeå standing proudly in the University campus area. A lighthouse city in the RUGGEDISED smart city project, Umeå has an ambitious target of 100 percent renewable energy in the university innovation district.

Visualizing Energy will start on 19 June during the European Sustainable Energy week and will remain in Brussels (Belgium) throughout the summer.

Abracadabra! Test our regulatory and technical tools on extreme renovation opportunities

Brussels, Belgium
Résidence Palace (rue de la Loi, 155, B-1040 Brussels)
ABRACADABRA will host an interactive workshop as part of the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW), taking place in Brussels, Belgium. Organised by the European Commission, the yearly event gathers a diverse group of public authorities, energy agencies, industry associations, business, researchers and civil society organisations.
As part of the “Networking Village”, ABRACADABRA will host a workshop space on Thursday, 22 June from 14:00-17:30 under the title “Abracadabra! Test our regulatory and technical tools on extreme renovation opportunities”.

Participants will get the chance to use computer-based tools to test financial, technical and regulatory feasibility of energy refurbishments. Specific case studies will be displayed on posters, inviting participants to identify and plan potential refurbishments through different types of AddOns.
The session will offer a unique opportunity for participants to get hands-on experience with the innovative tools developed by the project team. Participants will also be asked to consider economic, social, technical and legal barriers which may hinder deep energy renovation of existing buildings, along with strategies to overcome them.
In particular, the ABRACADABRA strategy will be presented, which hinges on a densification strategy that has proven capable of generating investments in deep energy renovations across Europe. Participants will learn how the project is boosting the uptake of extreme renovation of buildings and densification through AddOns and AdoRes.

The Networking Village session will take place on Thursday, 22 June from 14:00-17:30 in the Résidence Palace (rue de la Loi, 155, B-1040 Brussels).
