Maynooth University and the Southern Regional Assembly, as ESPON Contact Point (ECP) and Monitoring Committee (MC) members respectively for Ireland, cordially invite you to an in-person seminar on the theme of Planning for Climate Neutral Territories: The Role of Blue/Green Infrastructure.
The purpose of this half-day seminar is to consider what approaches have been adopted to date in both planning and implementing blue/green infrastructure and the key drivers behind this investment. Drawing on previous ESPON research, regional initiatives and other EU-funded programmes, this seminar will consider the role of blue/green infrastructure in delivering on smart, sustainable and territorial inclusive development and planning for climate neutrality. This half-day event builds on previous SEA (Strategic Environmental Assessment) Fora events held by the three Regional Assemblies since 2020 to build capacity within local authorities on strategic priorities and showcase the most up to date research and outputs of the various departments.
Sponsored by the ESPON 2030 programme, attendance at this in-person only seminar is free of charge. However, places are limited, and we encourage you to register early.
