15:10-17:00:  What can we do together for successful replication?

Roundtable discussions with the different lighthouse cities/ follower cities or scale-ups. Proaction café style. Main question: What are your needs, what can you offer to other cities when it comes to replication of your solutions, practices and tools? All participants can indicate a question/ idea they would like to discuss more in depth. Then all participants will vote and select 6 which they think they would like to discuss.

The first round will focus on those 6 ideas and discuss NEEDS: what the city needs in order to replicate

The second round will focus on the 6 ideas and discuss OFFER: what can the city offer in order to achieve replication
