How can your city become future-proof?

During 2018-2020 the European Green Capital Network developed a series of toolkits for cities outside of the network, providing recommendations and strategies around thematic visions for sustainable European cities

This toolkit focusses on the future-proof vision. This vision combines European cities' strategies to use nature-based solutions to become (or stay) resilient towards natural and manmade disasters and adapt to climate change. Reducing vulnerability, safeguarding freshwater supply and quality as well as ecosystem services, and installing robust, sustainable urban infrastructures, belong to the key tasks of any local government.

The brochure includes transformation pathways from European Green Capital Network members and practical tips for local governments looking for ways to make their cities and towns future-proof.
