The Committee of the Regions will organise its 5th Summit of Europe’s regions and cities on 22 and 23 March 2012 in Copenhagen, in partnership with the city of Copenhagen and the capital region of Denmark. On this occasion, an exhibition on “Beautiful, green, smart and inclusive: colourful cities” will showcase best practice in urban development. The Committee of the Regions invites regional and local authorities, associations and other organisations to participate in this exhibition by sending project(s) before 11 November.
A total of about 30 stands will be organised along these themes:
- The ‘beautiful city’ will concentrate on projects linked to architecture and town planning
- The ‘green city’ will focus on energy efficiency, transport solutions and sustainable urban/regional development
- The ‘smart city’ will showcase innovation projects and smart specialisation strategies
- The ‘inclusive city’ will promote social innovation, employment and creative solutions to social services.
After the main event, the exhibition will be brought to the CoR in Brussels.
