Solutions for strategic adaptation planning in European cities
RESIN Stakeholder Dialogue
Manchester, United Kingdom
This event will bring together city practitioners, critical infrastructure providers and experts on climate change adaptation and resilience in cities for a one-day event to make connections, exchange knowledge and plan for future collaboration on urban climate change adaptation.

The cities of Greater Manchester and Bratislava will open a dialogue with their peers from the cities of Burgas, Vilnius, Radom, Sfantu Gheorghe, Lahti, Newcastle, Reykjavik, Ghent and Nijmegen to explore possible solutions to the challenges and stresses the cities are currently facing as a result of climate change, particularly in light of the resilience of critical infrastructures.

Hear how your organisation can more easily and effectively make decisions to build resilience and adapt to climate change as part of a coordinated framework, with the help of a new suite of decision-support tools co-developed by cities and researchers.

Meet local government representatives and researchers working together for resilient infrastructure across Europe. Hear about approaches to building city resilience in countries such as Belgium, Finland, Poland, Iceland, Romania, Bulgaria, Lithuania, The Netherlands and the UK. Consider how, with their vital role on the frontline of adaptation, Cities across Europe can shape, learn and drive transferable solutions to climate challenges. Learn more about the practical tools currently under development which can help them now and in the future in guiding the identification of risks, assessment of their interdependencies and impacts, and selection of effective adaptation solutions. Find out how these can benefit your organisation.

Open European Day at Bonn Resilient Cities
Bonn, Germany
The fifth Open European Day at Bonn Resilient Cities will bring together key adaptation actors from different organisations: cities and city networks, regional and national governments, researchers, adaptation experts and European representatives.

This year’s Open European Day will build on last year's addition of interactive workshops around key themes. These will be organised by cities, where they will share their local governments’ experience in depth or by relevant institutions that support cities through programmes and initiatives.

Themes will include adaptation, resilience and cultural heritage, looking for the first time into the intersection of adaptation and culture. The OED Marketplace will return following the success of the format at the third Open European Day, providing a space for participants to network and brainstorm.

Registration for the event can be completed online.
