This peer-to-peer workshop is part of ALLIANCE, an EU-funded project enhancing the implementation of Local Green Deals. Through it, the cities of Espoo (Finland), Mannheim, and Umea (Sweden), together with local social or sustainable economy partners, have convened a “Local Green Deal Leadership Group”, a platform to exchange good practices, challenges, and learnings. The meeting in Mannheim is a hands-on opportunity to learn about the experiences of the three cities and how they are planning to concretise Memoranda of Understanding - the actual “deals” for action - with different stakeholders.
