What is the future bringing in terms of risks and opportunities for environmental sustainability in the Urban areas? A number of EU experts at the interface between science and policies have recently identified 8 emerging environmental issues which may bring risks and/or benefits to Urban environments. Those issues include for example urban food production, green urban design, airborne urban transport and the impact of light planning on humans and ecosystems. Join our interactive session to discuss, priorities and vote on these issues, and you will make an important contribution to the first EU foresight system for the environment!
