How do Ukraine cities maintain the ambition for sustainable development?

18. October 11:30 - 12:45

Join us for a follow-up session on last year's EURESFO workshop in Athens, exploring "Ukraine Cities on the Path to Resilient and Sustainable Post-War Recovery." We'll assess progress, challenges, and opportunities faced by Ukraine cities amid adversity.

Ukraine cities aspire to sustainable urban development despite war's impact, alongside crises like heat waves, flooding, urbanization, and pandemics. Vinnytsia, Rivne and Lviv, will share experiences, progress, and lessons on managing multi-hazards during stressful times.

Discover how Ukraine cities can align their goals with European counterparts, integrating with sustainability initiatives. Engage in an interactive panel discussion featuring representatives from European cities, Vinnytsia, Rivne, Lviv, ICLEI, and NURI, discussing resilient urban development strategies and challenges.

In today's complex urban landscape, collaboration and shared learning are crucial. All cities, whether in Ukraine or elsewhere, must enhance resilience. Join us to bridge the gap between Ukraine cities and the broader European urban community. Together, we can create a brighter, sustainable future.

This session is part of the The governance of the new crises: managing and funding resilience in Europe stream.
