Save the date for the 9th European Urban Resilience Forum

Every year, city represenatives, experts and stakeholders at the local and regional stage come together at the European Resilience Forum to participate in a unique exchange and stategise on climate adaptation, disaster management and urban resilience. The event is an excellent opportunity to explore future potential for collaboration between local governments. This flagship ICLEI Europe event invites local and regional governments seeking to shape a climate-resilient future to take part in the discussion and to meet up this September in Athens. Registration is now officially open for the 9th European Urban Resilience Forum (EURESFO), taking place in Athens, Greece on 14 and 15 September 2022. 

Over the past 9 years, EURESFO has served as a unique exchange platform for city representatives, experts and stakeholders from local and regional institutions to discuss strategies, initiatives and actions for adapting to climate change, managing disasters and building urban resilience.

The event will keep its informative, open and interactive character, while also maintaining its ‘PowerPoint free’ format. Participants are encouraged to share experiences and points of view on a variety of topics that will explore challenges in urban resilience planning and implementation. Some topics that will be highlighted this year are: coastal resilience, tackling heat waves and wildfires, disaster risk reduction for safer and healthier communities, regional pathways towards resilience transformation, nature-based solutions for equitable development and many more! 

EURESFO is a European initiative driven by ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability and the European Environment Agency (EEA), and this year will be co-organised by the City of Athens (Greece).
