Urban20: Université Gustave Eiffel makes its expertise available to the mayors of the world's major metropolises

From 30 September to 2 October, the Urban20 virtual summit will bring together the mayors of the main metropolises of the countries in the G20. The aim of this international meeting is to develop and share solutions to address the urban challenges of tomorrow, especially carbon neutrality and the circular construction economy, two subjects that are the subject of recommendations submitted by Université Gustave Eiffel.

Improving the carbon neutrality of buildings and the recycling of building materials, on a global scale. The white paper seeks to address this major challenge, and was coordinated by Jean-Bernard Kovarik the Vice-President for Public Policy Support at Université Gustave Eiffel, in collaboration with cities in Mexico, Saudi Arabia and South Africa. Entitled Carbon-neutral Buildings and Recycled Materials: How Cities Want to Solve the Challenge, this 40-page document is one of the 15 position papers produced by some hundred experts, representatives of local and regional authorities, international associations and economic players involved in the international Urban20 (U20) initiative. Their work is now in the hands of the mayors of the world's major cities in order to help them put forward concrete policy recommendations to the G20 leaders and heads of state who are to hold their 15th summit in Saudi Arabia at the end of November.
