Environmental Education in a Wired Age

Hanoi seminar post
CityNet is organising a session focusing on the Environmental Education in the Wired Age on March 3rd, 2016 in Hanoi, Vietnam, alongside the 7th High Level Seminar (HLS) on Environmentally Sustainable Cities (ESC) under the theme of “Redesigning toward the 2030 Agenda”.

This particular session will discuss projects and initiatives that are aiming to create sustainable cities through stakeholder engagement, education, raise environmental awareness and implementation of smart technologies.

HLS ESC is the flagship collaborative initiative by 18 East Asia Summit (EAS) participating countries (consisting of 10 ASEAN member states, plus Australia, China, India, Japan, Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Russia and the United States) to foster concrete activities on ESC in the region. It provides a platform to gather a broad range of stakeholders from government ministries, local governments, international organisations, NGOs, academe and front‐line experts on urban environmental management to discuss current issues and explore opportunities for collaborative actions.

The draft programme can be accessed here.

Around the world, cities are facing #environmentalhazards like extreme #heat, #landslides, #pollution, and #flooding. To enhance #resilience to #climatechange impacts, cities must monitor and address these hazards. Earth observations can help cities understand and enhance urban resilience and make better decisions for planning, urban #greening, monitoring, and more.

This 3-part, introductory webinar series will provide an overview of the Earth Observations Toolkit for Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements, an online knowledge resource that shares ready-to-use Earth observation data sets and tools. These resources can be applied in policy areas that are important to resilient and sustainable cities. Such areas include sustainable urban planning, adequate #housing, access to #publictransport, and access to public spaces.
