Formerly known as the Open European Day, the European Urban Resilience Forum will be organised on May 25 by ICLEI - Local Govenments for Sustainability in co-operation with the European Environment Agency, back-to-back with the 10th annual ICLEI Resilient Cities Conference..
This event intends to support productive exchange between representatives from cities and regions of all sizes (both with each other and with a range of interested parties, including EU institutions, researchers and consultants). Participants are encouraged to share experiences and points of view on diverse topics, tackling existing challenges in local urban adaptation, while exploring potential solutions and opportunities for future collaboration.
The 2019 edition will build around three topical streams:
A variety of sessions and training workshops will cover topics like exploring the co-benefits of adaptation and mitigation, social justice in adaptation actions, strategic narratives for urban heat and health or innovative schemes for municipal financing for resilience and nature based solutions.
