Progressive cities across Europe continue to implement transformative policies despite the widespread crises the world has recently faced. Aware of social and ecological problems, these cities are trying to build bold alternatives in areas such as health, food, housing and transportation. Join us as we strengthen our knowledge capacity to increase the resilience of cities in the face of the climate crisis and disseminate inspiring stories from green politicians, academics and urban actors. Together we can build a bottom-up positive future.

About the event

In this event, we aim to further explore the theoretical knowledge around the concept of resilient cities and talk about exemplary green city practices from both Europe and Turkey. We welcome anyone who wishes to increase their knowledge and contribute to the discussion about solutions to the pressing problems of our time.


This event is part of the Cities As Places of Hope project. A project organised by the Green European Foundation with the support of Oikos, the Institute for Political Ecology, Transición Verde, Fundacio Nous Horitzons, ASSED Sunrise and Green Thought Association, Wetenschappelijk Bureau GroenLinks and with the financial support of the European Parliament to the Green European Foundation.

Launched in 2019, this project focuses on the development of progressive city networks as a key factor to create a better Europe. The project aims to bring together progressive and transformative local and international city networks, provide spaces for cooperation, facilitate information exchange, share and give visibility to best practices, and ultimately contribute to the creation of a positive narrative about the future of Europe. “Resilient cities” will be the theme of the project in 2022.
