Open European Day becomes European Urban Resilience Forum: strengthening the topical focus

Since 2013, the Open European Day has offered a unique exchange platform where city representatives and stakeholders from various local and regional institutions can come together to discuss strategies and actions for adapting to climate change and building urban resilience.

Due to the success of the last years and the increasing relevance of the annual event, the organisers decided to create a stronger link between the title and the topic of the conference and rename the event European Urban Resilience Forum.

The Forum will take place on 25 June 2019 in Bonn (Germany) and once again invites all those seeking to shape a climate-resilient future for our cities and regions to take part.

The event will keep its informative, open and interactive character and ‘Powerpoint-free’ format. 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.
