11 - 12 September 2024Espoo, Finland

This event will take place from September 11th to 12th, 2024, in Espoo, Finland. As we reflect on our learnings, successes, and outcomes, we will offer meetings, public presentations, and networking opportunities that provide key insights into our work and the solutions we implemented in SPARCS.

SPARCS lighthouse cities – Espoo and Leipzig – will look back at the milestones achieved in positive energy districts, mobility, energy and ICT systems and try to answer the most important question: what comes next?

At the same time, SPARCS Fellow Cities Kladno, Reykjavik, Maia, Kifissia, and Lviv will present their plans for replication and upscaling as they strive to transform their cities.

Join us at the SPARCS final conference as we try to answer the questions of how we can turn cities into sustainable, energy-positive, zero-carbon communities with citizens at the centre so we can create the sustainable cities of tomorrow.

SPARCS Final Conference: Sparking Transformation Towards Sustainable Cities will also include a full-day programme co-organised with Scalable Cities, as well as an opportunity for a Stage Takeover where you can also share your story and key learnings.
