EURESFO: connecting cities for a resilient future

The European Urban Resilience Forum (EURESFO) is 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 is a European initiative driven by ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability and the European Environment Agency (EEA) since 2013, and this year will be co-organised by the City of Athens.

The 2022 edition of the European Urban Resilience Forum will take place on 14 and 15 September in Athens, Greece. All those seeking to shape a climate-resilient future for our cities and regions are once again invited to take part in the discussion and to meet up in Athens (Venue: Technopolis City of Athens). 

The forum will keep its informative, open and interactive character, 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.

  • Coastal resilience
