DOING THINGS DIFFERENTLY: THE TURAS APPROACH TO URBAN RESILIENCE & SUSTAINABILITY

The research undertaken in TURAS has been highly customised to local needs and the emphasis of the last two years of TURAS is firmly on how research results can be ‘operationalised’ or integrated into local authority planning strategies and operations.

On 7th October, in the framework of Green Cities in Malaga, Promalaga will organise a first showcase of the integrated transition strategies emerging from this work starting with a presentation of what has been happening locally in Malaga. The real-life experience of local authorities from Brussels, London and Rome will be presented in a local authority roundtable. This will be followed by an SME roundtable where a number of SMEs (both start ups emerging from TURAS and well established companies) will explain how they help to make TURAS results available outside of the TURAS partner cities.

Any local authority interested in finding out more about TURAS results is invited to come along to this meeting or organise a one to one meeting on the afternoon of 7th with any of the SMEs or local authorities involved.

Open free of charge to all Green Cities participants. Please register for the Green Cities event here and you will have automatic entrance to the TURAS showcase event.

It is shaping up to be a very exciting session!
