The Cyprus University of Technology (Tepak) and the EIT Climate-KIC Hub in Cyprus are organising an event on the rise of the new urbanism next month.

Cyprus Talks Green: The rise of the new urbanism will take place at 9.30am on November 8, world urbanism day, at the Royal Hall, Nicosia.

This event is the third one of a series of events, jointly organised by organisations across Cyprus, which promote sustainable practices with the aim to “amplify the impact of our common actions and identify areas of possible coalitions,” the organisers said.

All presentations will be around urban sustainability and circularity, followed by an optional free lunch.

“New urbanism refers to the design of modern cities and neighbourhoods that promote environmentally friendly habits, with a focus on innovative solutions for mitigation and adaptation to climate change,” explained the organisers.

Organisations involved in the event include the Centre of Social Innovation, Chrysalis LEAP, Cyprus Energy Agency, Friends of the Earth Cyprus, and Sustainable Energy Laboratory.
Cyprus Employers and Industrialists Federation (OEB), Electra Energy (Greece), and MCAST (Malta) will be participating the event.

The Ambassador of Czech Republic in Cyprus, Vladimír Něme and the Ambassador the Kingdom of Netherlands in Cyprus Elke Merks-Schaapveld will present the opening keynote speeches.
