EF Alpbach 2019 – BOS: Green Deal and the City – how to transform cities for livability and affordability?

The European Green Deal and the New European Bauhaus initiative are aimed at bringing about climate neutrality by 2050, transforming an entire continent towards sustainability. But issues regarding how to alter the existing housing stock remain to be answered: Can the needs of residents be aligned with climate protection, liveability, and economic growth?
