His ambition is to lead his native town Pécs from European Capital of Culture 2010 to Green Capital of Europe 202?.
Topic 1: Challenges regarding implementation and operation and possible solutions (or experiences and good practices). Write down challenges on the whiteboard, that either happened to you or that you fear. Include short coffee break to facilitate clustering of input by the moderator. In the next step try to come up with different approaches to deal with the challenges. Afterwards, discuss the ideas. As last step, write down which lessons learned you take away and which challenges are still open. Maybe inform the participants on the content of the workshop, so they can prepare?
Topic 2: What are your regionally specific operational requirements and how does it influence the technical requirements? Can we cluster between different types of requirements or is no case like the other? What are common challenges, where can we work together or learn from each other to overcome them?
The webinar link will be sent to the participants prior to the event.
