Reference Framework for Sustainable Cities (RFSC)

Urban development - 22.05.2013

Coffee, croissants and "integrated sustainability management": join us for breakfast on 4 June
The Reference Framework for Sustainable Cities (RFSC) invites you to join us for a breakfast meeting to discuss how integrated sustainability management* can improve the performance of European municipalities in urban development.

This informal breakfast, to be held on 4 June 2013 in Brussels, will bring together speakers from the European Parliament and Commission, representatives from the French national government and from the local level.  Participants will share their experiences with the RFSC tool and, more generally speaking, with urban development.

The breakfast organisers include the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) and Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI) under the patronage of the European Parliament Urban Intergroup.

* Integrated sustainability management is when a city ensures that its urban development policies and projects abide by the three main pillars of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental.  It also involves the different stakeholders – citizens, private companies and civil society – in the policy-making process.  For example, if a city wishes to build a motorway in order to enhance the economic activity of one of its neighbourhoods, it must notably consult with the aforementioned stakeholders and assess the potential environmental impact in order to ensure a balance between the three pillars.
