Thessaloniki Sustainability Summit (TSS2020)

“Sustainable Cities and Ports” – 7th of September 2020

Thessaloniki Sustainability Summit (TSS) 2020 brings together scientists, local authorities, politicians, entrepreneurs, and other stakeholders to discuss on the sustainable development of cities and ports as nodes connecting land and sea.

The topic of the summit “Sustainable Cities and Ports” is in accordance with the Agenda 2030 and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) as well as the European Green Deal.
The 2020 Thessaloniki Sustainability Summit was hosted by the Faculty of Engineering of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki since, due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the Thessaloniki International Fair was cancelled.
