Riga Dialogue on Smart Cities for Climate Mitigation – Monitoring & Evaluation

You can improve only the things you can measure. With this in mind the city of Riga invites you to actively participate in a dialogue to explore and establish what constitutes smart city principles in relation to climate mitigation and what data defines and serves measuring this.

This venture will take place as an enquiry organised in 3 webinars of 120 min each. Each webinar will focus on one of the following 3 perspectives: governance transport, utilities and infrastructure. Experts from each sector will share their experience and ideas on the given topic. All participants are welcome to participate in the discussion session with the experts after presentations. The working language of the seminars is English.
