"The SmartEnCity Academy for Zero Carbon Transition” is an online training course for cities, municipalities and smart decision making.

The aim of the SmartEnCity Academy is to follow the straightforward steps of the “Cities4ZERO Urban Transformation Strategy for Cities’ Decarbonisation”, a strategy developed as part of the SmartEnCity project. It has been designed to qualify city and municipality representatives, planners and developers as ambassadors for a carbon free future and to provide them with the necessary tools to help their cities reach their goals of decarbonisation in the near future.
