This conference, held in the headquarters of the Committee of the Regions in Brussels attracted a wide audience of politicians, policy makers and experts from across Europe’s regions as well as from Brussels-based institutions and representations. It looked at three inter-linked areas of policy where there is real potential for peri-urban regions to play a crucial role in the future: • Environment and climate change • Territorial development • Agriculture and food production This summary highlights some of the key points made by speakers and reactions from the audience. It should be read in conjunction with the opening speeches of Mrs Lenie Dwarshuis the President of PURPLE and Mr Luc van den Brande, the President of the Committee of the Regions which are both on the PURPLE website (www.purple-eu.org).
The resources in this website are organised into four themes.
