This year, the main topic will be the implementation of the Green Deal, the role of regions and cities in this, and with some focus on the specific role of cross-border co-operation in delivering cohesion and Green Deal. Sustianable Ukraine will showcase examples of projects with high potential for cross border cooperation, and transformation of the economy and life on the principle of 3D-decentralization, digitalization and decarbonization.
