Climate-KIC and Paragon Europe conference: Towards a zero carbon economy beyond 2030

On May 29th 2017, Climate-KIC and Paragon Europe are organising a conference in Valetta, Malta, around three important pillars towards a zero carbon economy; the challenges and solutions in green urban centers; circular economy and green finance.

The aim of the conference is to create a world's first zero carbon economy solution in the Mediterranean by 2030 and issue the "Valletta Declaration": a key outcome in which Mediterranean countries and member states of the European Union take note and declare themselves supportive of the private sector-driven "Valletta Declaration on a Mediterranean Zero Carbon Economy by 2030" objective, completing the vision towards a zero carbon economy in the region.

Throughout the conference the focus will be on low carbon mobility concepts, the operation of smart grids, energy neutral buildings, the promotion of efficient water management and improvement of public and green spaces. Climate-KIC will also showcase the key deliverables achieved so far on Smart Sustainable Districts and its plans to extend the flagship programme to the Mediterranean. The Smart Sustainable Districts (SSD) is a Climate-KIC programme that works closely with highly ambitious districts, such as Malta, across Europe to identify innovative solutions to their sustainability and climate change challenges.

The conference is organised under the EU Presidency of Malta.

More information on the conference can be found on the website.
