National award ceremonies for forerunner and special award-winning cities

The ceremonies will create the opportunity to award the winners of the competition and promote their achievements in the field of integrated urban planning. They will also give further recognition to the MULTIPLY project and its further activities.

Exchange visits to forerunner cities and thematic workshops

During exchange visits to the forerunner cities, the staff from the committed cities will discover model solutions for integrated urban planning and engage in an intensive exchange with relevant staff. Each of the exchange visits will be targeted at one of our three main target groups.

  • Policy makers – topics covered: finance tools and political communication for energy efficiency projects
  • Technical planning staff – topics covered: technical details of integrated district energy concepts, energy efficient buildings, transport systems, and land-use planning, cross-sectoral integration
  • Communication and PR staff – topics covered: effective communication strategies, participatory planning approaches.

Targeted workshops for key actors of municipal planning

The workshops will help to pass on knowledge about forerunner cities projects and committed cities Energy Plans, as well as to spread information about integrated urban planning. They will empower municipal authorities and encourage the multiplication of energy efficient districts across Europe.
