Cities are on the frontline of the climate and biodiversity crises. As home to over seventy percent of the European population and as the closest level of government to citizens, cities hold the power to create collaborative transformative change. But how can we harness this power? How can cities engage with individuals and businesses to create new collective norms? In collaboration with the city of Grenoble Alpes Metropole, the Eurocities Environment Forum will take place from 6-8 April 2022 on the theme of behaviour change for the transition to climate neutrality.Grenoble, which was named European Green Capital 2022, is the third densest city in France (outside of Ile-de-France) with 8,861 inhabitants per km². The mountains provide a natural barrier to urban sprawl driving innovative urban regeneration and rehabilitation, but the city alone can be praised for its engagement with stakeholders big and small to help shape a resilient, sustainable future.
