Open European Day will be held for the fifth edition back-to-back with the Bonn Resilient Cities conference on 25th April 2018. European cities and key adaptation voices from different institutions will converge at the 5th OED to exchange and debate on the most pressing issues around climate adaptation and urban resilience. Cities have lauded previous years’ editions as inspiring and informative, particularly due to the characteristic interactive format and emphasis on exchange and discussions: the OED is PowerPoint-free zone. Audiences of between 100 and 150 participants at previous editions have been primarily made up of cities and local governments at various stages of adaptation and resilience development, including some adaptation and climate experts and professionals.
Last year’s 4th edition focused on the broad climate adaptation topics of transformation, co-creation and innovation and introduced a new dynamic and lively OED Marketplace. The 5th Open European Day will continue to feature the successful OED Marketplace and as a new addition this year, will offer tailor-made training sessions on key themes like water and flood management, disaster risk management and planning, vulnerability assessment and financing instruments and methods for adaptation funding.
Climate-fit.city will be present at the OED Marketplace - come and meet us there to learn more about our service development and get involved.
