TerritoriALL - Green infrastructure and reuse of spaces

This first issue of TerritoriALL focuses on a Green Europe, a priority for the Croatian Presidency and for the European Commission. It is also one of the two pillars of the renewed Territorial Agenda. We dedicated a Thematic Dossier on Green Europe, where we present our two recently published Policy Briefs and analyses from stakeholders, policymakers and researchers.
This first edition hosts a special message from Dubravka Šuica, Vice-President of the European Commission and Commissioner for Democracy and Demography.
We also have messages and articles by:
Claude Turmes, Minister for Energy and Minister for Spatial Planning in Luxembourg;
Željko Uhlir, State Secretary for Construction and Physical Planning in Croatia;
Maria Spyraki, member of the European Parliament and co-chair of the Intergroup on Climate change;
Normunds Popens, deputy director-general of DG REGIO;
Lambert Van Nistelrooij, a former member of the European Parliament and member of the REGI Committee;
Above all, we received contributions from MC members, experts, researchers and members of our ESPON staff.
