EURESFO: connecting cities for a resilient future

The 11th European Urban Resilience Forum will take place on 26-28 June in Valencia, Spain. Registeration will open soon!

All those seeking to shape a climate-resilient future for our cities and regions are cordially invited to attend the 2024 edition of the European Urban Resilience Forum (EURESFO).

Since 2013, EURESFO has been 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), and will now be co-organised with the City of Valencia for the 2024 edition.

Again in 2024, EURESFO will maintain its characteristic informative, open, and interactive ambiance, upholding its 'PowerPoint free' format. Participants are enthusiastically invited to share their experiences and perspectives on an array of topics that delve into the challenges inherent in urban resilience planning and implementation.

Target Audience: Resilience-makers, Resilience innovators, Resilience providers, and Resilience supporters.

EURESO24: Resilience with a special focus on governance, water and climate-neutral cities.

The 11th EURESFO will be built around three thematic streams and a specai focus stream:

  • Multilevel governance, cooperation and just transition: resilience leaves no one behind.
  • Water resilience and the Blue Economy in and beyond the Mediterranean region.
  • Enabling the transformation to resilient, adaptive, and climate-neutral cities and regions.
  • Special focus stream: Post-conflict Resilience and Recovery, focusing on Ukraine

See the EURESFO 2024 Concept note for more information.
