EUROCITIES is the network of major European cities, which was founded in 1986 by the mayors of municipal governments of the six large cities: Barcelona, Birmingham, Frankfurt, Lyon, Milan and Rotterdam.

Today, the network already units over 140 of Europe’s largest cities and over 45 partner cities. The main goal of Eurocities is to respond to common issues that affect the day-to-day lives of Europeans, and their objective is to reinforce the important role that local governments should play in a multilevel governance structure. 

EUROCITIES Environment Forum meeting

Every year, thanks to Eurocities, the cities work together, sharing the best practises and skills with their partners, in order to identify the most practical and innovative ways to bring environmental and sustainable development of cities to the local decision-making institutions and urban planning structures.

In April 3-5, 2019 EUROCITIES Environment Forum will take place in the city of Genova. This year the theme of the meeting is ‘Building Resilient Cities: from Challenges to Opportunities’. 

“This forum aims to improve understanding of what challenges cities face and what it means to be a climate resilient city. By assessing different resilience strategies from cities across Europe, participants will discuss, what aspects of these strategies can be transferred and replicated in other cities, as well as discussing possible barriers and solutions. Deep-dive session will explore risk assessment, reflections on how to make the whole community resilient and techniques to create stakeholder partnerships to build resilience at the city level. We will also have a session dedicated to the key issue of including preservation of cultural and natural heritage in cities resilience strategies.”

The Role of Colouree

In collaboration with AMIU Genova, Colouree has developed the idea of using their data-driven tool for creating a productive recycling system and providing timely waste disposal.

Colouree is going to be represented by its CEO, Arch. Nicola Pisani. The title of his speech is “Data-driven tools for planning and monitoring urban waste management systems”

The program is dedicated to:

  • visualization on web-map of the positioning and sizing of the urban waste accumulation points;
  • automated assessment of accessibility and sizing levels points of accumulation of urban waste at different scales (street, neighborhood, city);
  • geo-localized projections of the segmented contributions by type of user and waste;
  • geo-localized estimates of accumulation levels segmented by type of waste and bins available;
  • streamlining of routing and sheduling systems.

These data, combined with the recognition and quantification of the paths, can eventually be used to refine the routing and scheduling processes of the company.
