About this event

A Tale of Two Cities

How Amsterdam and Grenoble combined forces on their way to carbon neutrality

Five years of City-zen have yielded heaps of learnings in two separate locations with varying and unique circumstances. The learnings need to be shared with a wide range of target audiences, from professional experts to interested citizens.

We will tell the story of two cities with a similar mission yet entirely different approaches and, consequently, different outcomes. Along the way we will display a wide range of results and learnings. Some of these are city-specific or project-specific, others are shared. The story ends with concrete recommendations based on collected experiences, learnings and insights thus forming an ideal springboard for future endeavours.
