The megaregion is the key to localizing the European Green Deal and achieving EU ambitions to become a climate-neutral continent, thus addressing the agendas of the New European Bauhaus. The workshop by the SURE-Eurodelta Network will focus on presenting concrete spatial and policy-oriented actions, especially in the field of sustainable transport infrastructures and mobility. The SURE partners from four countries will showcase their best practices in response to the European Green Deal. Additionally, the outcomes and recommendations from the ESPON STISE research as well as the bright ideas from the Eurodelta Knowledge Platform will be presented. During this session we will launch a discussion on the added value for the European nations and other megaregions, to support cross-border cooperation. In the workshop, various stakeholders will address the challenges and potential impact of green transition plans. The aim is to create a sustainable, green, just, productive delta region. The program will be held on be Thursday, October 14, 2021 from 11:30 to 13:00 hours.
