[Replay] Sustainable City by France Delegation to Poland

Sustainable City by France organized a delegation to Poland from the 29th to the 30th of November 2022, with the support of the French Ministry of Ecological Transition and Territorial Cohesion, the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and the French Embassy in Warsaw. The theme will be “Sustainable Cities: a Franco-Polish dialogue on the tools and methods of sustainable strategies for 2050“.

This trip will provide an opportunity to present the French vision of the sustainable city and its fundamentals (sobriety, resilience, inclusion and creativity), but also to put into perspective the Franco-Polish conceptions, in line with the exchanges undertaken during the World Urban Forum (held between 26 and 30 June 2022 in Katowice, Poland). 

> In line with the “Eco Miasto” programme, we wish to strengthen the dialogue and cooperation between France and Poland in the field of sustainable cities. 

> The aim is to deepen France-Poland cooperation on sustainable cities by identifying common issues and action levers, adapted to the local context and replicable in other territories.




  • A field visit: presentation of a district currently under rehabilitation in the center of Warsaw – urban renewal issues, strong social policy and Ukrainian crisis. 
  • A day devoted to thematic round tables with the opportunity for public and private actors from both countries to share their stakes and operational solutions on the following top  priorities: “greening” and the fight against concrete,  transition, data management and digitalization, circular economy and waste management.
  • A focus on the “cooperation” aspect, be it Franco-Polish or European: discussions about the cities selected, in France and in Poland, for the European mission “100 climate neutral cities”.
