Report of the Connective Cities Planning Workshop on Sustainable Urban Energy Planning in SEE

The Connective Cities Planning Workshop, held on 2-4 November 2021, represented a follow-up learning process for those 10 municipalities that were keen to engage after the Dialogue Event held in May 2021. The workshop aimed at supporting the municipalities in fine-tuning their project ideas and developing them further towards bankable project proposals. The objective was, starting from the project ideas developed during the Dialogue Event, to contribute to real processes of change at the city level. Due to COVID-19 pandemic it was decided to conduct the event virtually. Nonetheless approach of Connective Cities which is to promote the international exchange of experience among urban practitioners, facilitate joint learning, share advice and develop joint projects persisted through virtual format as well to deliver most value for all involved parties.
