Many of the impacts associated with climate change exacerbate or alter existing threats (such as those associated with droughts, floods
and extreme events). Adaptation measures can benefit from the practical experience in disaster management. Join us for this online event where we will discuss what policy measures could be adapted to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
This event is Part of the ‘Cities as Places of Hope’ series; a project launched in 2019 focusing on progressive city networks that are a key factor in the development of a positive narrative on the future of Europe. The project brings together partners from Spain (Fundación Transición Verde), Catalonia (Nous Horitzons), Croatia (The Institute for Political Ecology-IPE) , Belgium (Oikos), North Macedonia (Sunrise), Wetenschappelijk Buereau GroenLinks (Netherlands) and Green Thought Association (Turkey). This 2021 project aims to bring together progressive and transformative trans-local city networks, to connect them and facilitate their exchanges, ultimately contributing to a positive narrative for the future of Europe.
