Thessaloniki 546 40, Greece
Thessaloniki City Hall, Leof. Vasileos Georgiou 1
This CEN Workshop has been initiated by the Smart Mature Resilience (SMR) consortium members, project funded by the EU Horizon 2020 program. The workshop will propose a definition of ‘city resilience’ and it will set out steps to follow for the practical implementation and operationalization of city resilience at local level. Furthermore the workshop will describe tools and it will give guidance for the resilience building process.

The CEN Workshop agreement might be helpful for local administration staff members engaged in sustainability, climate adaptation, resilience, environmental planning as well as strategic planning by providing guidance and training on resilience. The workshop might also be helpful for any other city stakeholders working on resilience.

The kick-off meeting will be held on 08 November 2017 in Thessaloniki. All interested parties are welcome to register for participation and submit comments on the draft Project Plan to Workshop Secretary, René Lindner no later than 31 October 2017.
