Workshop: SCATTER (Setting City Area Targets and Trajectories for Emissions Reduction)
SCATTER is a free tool that allows local authorities to access their greenhouse gas emissions and build pathways for emissions reduction. SCATTER also provides local authorities and city regions with the opportunity to standardise their greenhouse gas reporting easily and align to international frameworks, including the setting of targets in line with the Paris Climate Agreement.
This session will include a demo of the tool and overview of how the information from the tool can be used in creating localised carbon reduction reports.
Sara Telahoun | Sustainability Senior Consultant. Anthesis
Workshop: Urban Regeneration Model
The Urban Regeneration Model (URM) developed within REMOURBAN provides solutions in both technical and non-technical fields addressing the temporal goals, the main Smart City enablers within the transformation process –towards a more sustainable and smarter environment– and innovations in the key priority areas of energy, mobility and ICTs. Furthermore, the objective is unique: to accelerate the transformation of European cities (urban areas) into smarter places of advanced social progress and environmental regeneration, as well as places of attraction and engines of economic growth.
This workshop will present this model which is composed of several phases and decision making processes that aim to support the understanding of the city objectives and needs in order to implement a set of strategies for a sustainable and smartness-oriented regeneration of the city.
