At the discussion event, the results of the new analysis Green to Scale for Cities and Communities was showcased. The analysis shows how much emissions could be reduced with solutions applied by Nordic cities and communities if the solutions were implemented more widely. With these solutions, cities and communities in Nordic and other countries can reduce emissions while improving people’s overall well-being.

In addition, representatives from different cities discussed how cities can harness the potential of existing climate solutions.
