The cities’ initiatives around quality of life, sustainable growth and innovation are on the top agenda when 130 of Europe's major cities meet at the Eurocities annual conference 2015 in Copenhagen and Malmö. Copenhagen holds a unique position as international, green city role model and can thus be an inspiration for cities worldwide. The purpose of the summit is to send a strong joint statement to COP21 in Paris.

- Eurocities Annual Conference 2015 is a unique opportunity for knowledge-sharing between politicians, companies and representatives from 35 different European countries, which should contribute to make European cities more attractive to live in. As the main partner of the conference, we share our extensive knowledge and experiences on how sustainability and quality of life go hand in hand when we develop our cities, says Jens-Peter Saul, Group CEO at Ramboll.  

Four themes are key for the cities in the future

The main theme of the summit is ’Living cities – sustainable urban growth and quality of life’. There will be four parallel roundtable debates on the themes of air quality, employment, attracting investments and local economic development as well as urban mobility.

In the session about air quality, Ralph E. Morris from Ramboll's Environment & Health division in the US will give his insights together with leading politicians and other international experts.

During the conference, the cities will inspire each other with networking sessions to learn about each other's challenges and experiences. Copenhagen Municipality and Ramboll will present Copenhagen's Climate Adaptation Plan - which Ramboll has helped concretise - and discuss how climate adaptation initiatives can increase liveability in urban areas.
